Summary of Benefits for
2021 Anthem MediBlue Access (PPO)


Anthem MediBlue Access (PPO) H8552-029 is a 2021 Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Part-C plan by Anthem Blue Cross Life and Health Insurance Co available to residents in California. This plan includes additional Medicare prescription drug (Part-D) coverage. The Anthem MediBlue Access (PPO) has a monthly premium of $30.00 and has an in-network Maximum Out-of-Pocket limit of $6,700 (MOOP). This means that if you get sick or need a high cost procedure the co-pays are capped once you pay $6,700 out of pocket. This can be a extremely nice safety net.

Anthem MediBlue Access (PPO) is a Local PPO. A preferred provider organization (PPO) is a Medicare plan that has created contracts with a network of "preferred" providers for you to choose from at reduced rates. You do not need to select a primary care physician and you do not need referrals to see other providers in the network. Offering you a little more flexibility overall. You can get medical attention from a provider outside of the network but you will have to pay the difference between the out-of-network bill and the PPOs discounted rate.

Anthem Blue Cross Life and Health Insurance Co works with Medicare to provide significant coverage beyond Part A and Part B benefits. If you decide to sign up for Anthem MediBlue Access (PPO) you still retain Original Medicare. But you will get additional Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance) coverage from Anthem Blue Cross Life and Health Insurance Co and not Original Medicare. With Medicare Advantage Plans you are always covered for urgently needed and emergency care. Plus you receive all of the benefits of Original Medicare from Anthem Blue Cross Life and Health Insurance Co except hospice care. Original Medicare still provides you with hospice care even if you sign up for a Medicare Advantage Plan.
