Doctors Who Wish to Opt out of Blue Cross Exchange Network Must do so by June 30

May 01, 2014 - Jun 30, 2014


Doctors who do not wish to participate in Anthem Blue Cross' individual/exchange network have until June 30, 2014, to opt out.

Anthem Blue Cross recently notified over 11,000 practices that are currently participating in its individual/exchange network of a contract addendum that will become effective July 1, 2014. The amendment only applies to providers who are currently participating in the Anthem Blue Cross individual/exchange network.

According to the notice, which was mailed on March 31, the addendum contains new regulatory requirements. While many provisions are requirements of Covered California, CPMA has concerns with certain provisions that appear to be beyond the scope of regulatory requirements.
