New Blue HPN® plans in effect
When you understand your patients’ health coverage and local health plan networks, you can help maximize your patients’ benefits and boost your own success. Here are some details you should know about new Blue HPN products and the high performance network in Connecticut:
- New health plans built around Anthem’s Blue High Performance Network are live, effective January 1, 2021. Blue HPN 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.
- 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 com to identify providers participating in the Blue HPN.
You may see members accessing this network through a Blue HPN national employer plan, sold as an EPO or EPO HSA/HRA plan on an EPO Network. ID cards for these plans will show an ‘HPN’ label inside a suitcase icon, as shown in the mock-up sample ID card below.
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.
