Reminder: Blue High Performance Network name changing for 2022
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. Even more members are enrolled in plans with access to our high performance network for 2022.
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.
Use the Find Care / Find a Doctor tool at anthem.com to check for participation in the BlueHPN network.
As was the case in 2021, 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.
Some members will have a 3 Tier plan. Treatment from a Tier 1 HealthSync Provider is at their highest level of benefit. Tier 2 Benefits cover providers participating in our PPO network. Providers participating in our PPO network will be reimbursed at their PPO rate and the member will have a higher out of pocket costs than seeing a Tier 1 provider. Tier 3 covers providers that are out of network with the member having the greatest out of pocket.
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.
