Blue High Performance Network name changing for 2022
BlueHPN® is a national network designed from our local market expertise, deep data and strong provider relationships, and aligned with more than 50 local networks across the country. These local networks are then connected to the national chassis to form a national Blue HPN network.
First launched in 2021, even more members are covered by plans with access to the BlueHPN for 2022.
In Connecticut, the high performance network is built around the Hartford metro area. You can use our Find a Doctor / Find Care provider directory at www.anthem.com to identify providers participating in the BlueHPN.
Member ID cards and other plan materials (e.g., marketing communications) will feature one small change for year 2022: BlueHPN is now a single word rather than two. As was the case in 2021, you may see members accessing this network through a BlueHPN national employer plan, sold as an EPO or EPO HSA/HRA plan on an EPO Network. Under EPO plans, out of network benefits are limited to emergency or urgent care. Members may be required to select a primary care provider, but PCP referrals are not required for specialty care.
ID cards for these plans will show a ‘BlueHPN’ label inside a suitcase icon, as shown in the mock-up sample ID card below.
