Anthem Covered California is Leaving Most California Counties

Anthem has announced that their Health Insurance plans will only be available in certain Northern California Counties for the 2018 plan year.

This pull-out does not affect any of their Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage or Group Health plans.  This is only for their under age 65 individual and family health insurance plans starting January 1, 2018.

2018 Anthem Counties:

Anthem Covered California Counties for 2018:  Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, Del Norte, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Lassen, Mariposa, Mendocino, Merced, Nevada, Plumas, San Joaquin, Santa Clara, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, Tulare, Tuolumne, and Yuba county.

As you can see, Anthem has completely removed their plans from Southern California.  There are going to be a lot of Anthem policy members who need to compare and enroll in new plans.

If you wish to enroll in a health insurance policy “outside” of the covered california exchange, please click on one of the links below for quotes and enrollment.

Be sure to look into either Blue Shield or Kaiser depending on where you live.  Both offer very popular plan to choose from.  Blue Shield will have the only State wide traditional PPO plan available.

The same plan levels will be available for 2018; Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum plans.

Regardless of the county you live in, you will have company and plan options available to you and your family.  Call me when you have a few minutes and we can discuss your options.
