Anthem HMO

COVID-19 update for Anthem HMO members

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).

  1. Go to and click Find a Doctor / Find Care on the top of the home page. Click on Guests, then follow the steps below.
  2. Under What type of care are you searching for?” select Medical
  3. Under “What state do you want to search in?” select the name of your state.
  4. Under “What type of plan do you want to search with?” select Medical (Employer-Sponsored)
  5. Under “Select a plan/network,” select “Blue Cross HMO (CACare) – Large Group”, then click on Continue.
  6. You must input your city, county, or zip code where you are seeking care before filling in “search for care by specialty, name, NPI or license number” or clicking a link under the Common Searches area.

Urgent care providers

Follow the directions above for provider search, but choose “Urgent Care” under what type of care you’re searching for.

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.

Your copayment is $10 per prescription for generic drugs, 20% of cost (with a minimum $30 copay and up to a maximum of $125 copay) for brand name formulary drugs, and 45% of the cost for brand name non-formulary drugs (with a minimum of $50 copay and up to a maximum $250 copay) at participating pharmacies. You can find a participating pharmacy near you on the Anthem Blue Cross HMO website or by calling (800) 235-8631.
