Blue High Performance Network plans offer access to providers with a record of delivering high-quality, efficient care. BlueHPN® networks first went live January 1, 2021 in more than 50 cities across the country, including in the Indianapolis, South Bend, Fort Wayne and Evansville metro areas. Since then, our national customer base has grown, and again this fall, major employers will offer plans with access to our high performance network for the 2022 benefit year.


Member ID cards and other plan material will feature one small change for 2022: BlueHPN is now a single word rather than two.


As a reminder, BlueHPN is a national network designed from our local market expertise, deep data and strong provider relationships, and aligned with local networks across the country. These local networks are connected to the national chassis to form a national BlueHPN network.


In Indiana, Anthem offers large and small group employers plans with access to the BlueHPN network, with the existing HealthSync network as the Indiana HPN entry.

As has been the case this year, you may see patients accessing the Blue HPN/Blue Preferred Network through HMO or HSA plans with an HMO network. Under these plans, out of network benefits are limited to emergency or urgent care. Members must select a primary care provider, but PCP referrals are not required for specialty care.


Large group Blue HPN health plans sold in Indiana have a plan prefix of H8I; small group plans sold in Indiana have a prefix of H9I, and MEWA plans sold in Indiana will have a prefix of H6I. Keep in mind that other prefixes may be part of HPN plan member IDs. The sample ID card below is for a fictional member from Indiana enrolled in a plan with an “H9I” prefix. The new “Blue High Performance Network” logo and “BlueHPN” indicator in the suitcase icon are the most reliable indicators that a member is enrolled in an HPN plan.
