Under this HMO, you must use Anthem MyChoice providers; there is no out-of-network coverage (except in an emergency). You must choose an Anthem MyChoice doctor as your primary care physician (PCP) to be your first point of contact, coordinate your care, and make referrals. When you need care, you’re charged $30 per office visit ($40 for specialists, for which you must have a referral), and the plan pays the rest of the covered expense. Participants in Anthem MyChoice do not qualify for any of the healthy choices incentives; they are not charged the working spouse surcharge.
