Anthem quitting Individual in NorCal 2018

August 1, 2017

CoveredCA announced today the 2018 Individual Rates today (see pdf below). Included in this announcement is the news that Anthem will now completely pull out of the North Bay (Marin, Sonoma, Napa), Sacramento, San Francisco, Santa Cruz/Monterey as well as all of Southern CA.


Anthem had a lot of troubles in 2015 in the Individual Market. They tried to offer an affordable plan with a much narrower "Pathway" network. The roll out of that network and provider contracting left a lot of doctors and members disgruntled.  Anthem has continued to lose participation as they narrowed and tiered their networks and yet still had higher premiums than Blue Shield.  


Blue Shield, bravo and thank you for staying committed to all of California.
