The Anthem HMO is a low-cost plan designed specifically for USC employees that includes providers in Anthem’s HMO network and other selected providers. While the plan does not allow you to choose a Keck Medicine of USC doctor, some Keck doctors are in the Anthem network. You must use network providers; there is no out-of-network coverage (except in an emergency).
Designating a primary care physician
Upon enrollment in this plan, you must choose a primary care physician for each covered family member from Anthem Blue Cross HMO’s list of affiliated physicians. You must see your primary care physician for a referral to any other Anthem Blue Cross HMO physician and obtain authorization before seeking care outside the HMO.
