Blue High Performance Network plans offer access to providers with a record of delivering high quality, efficient care. BlueHPN® networks first went live on January 1, 2021 in more than 50 cities across the country. Since then, our national customer base has grown, and we have even more members enrolled in plans with access to our high performance network for 2022.

Member ID cards and other Plan materials feature one small change for 2022: BlueHPN written as 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 connect to the national chassis to form a national BlueHPN network. In Nevada, the Pathway HMO network is our Blue High Performance Network. Providers participating in the Pathway HMO will be in-network for any members with Blue High Performance Network plans.

If you are not sure whether your practice is part of the Pathway HMO network and therefore Blue High Performance Network, ask your office manager or contact your Anthem network consultant. Blue High Performance Network participation is displayed in provider profiles in Anthem’s provider directory.

As was true in 2021, you may see patients accessing this network through either a national employer plan, Blue High Performance Network, or large group employer plans with access to the Pathway 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.

Below is a sample ID card for a member from Nevada enrolled in a national employer BlueHPN plan for the 2022 benefit year. Note the new “Blue High Performance Network” logo and “BlueHPN” indicator in the suitcase icon.

Note: The High Performance Network acronym HPN is not used in conjunction or affiliated with any other local organizations known by the same acronym.
