Find Care, the doctor finder and transparency tool in the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) online directory, provides Anthem members with the ability to search for in-network providers using the secure member website at www.anthem.com. This tool currently offers multiple sorting options, such as sorting providers based on distance, alphabetic order, and provider name.
Beginning January 1, 2023, or later, an additional sorting option will be available for members to search by provider performance called Personalized Match. This sorting option is based on provider efficiency and quality outcomes, alongside member search radius. Provider pairings with the highest overall ranking within the member’s search radius will be displayed first. Members will continue to have the ability to sort based on distance, alphabetic order, and provider name.

- If you would like information about your quality or efficiency scoring used as part of this sorting option or if you would like to request reconsideration of those scores, you may do so by submitting an inquiry to availity.com.
Going forward, Anthem will continue to focus and expand our consumer tools and content to assist members in making more informed and personalized healthcare decisions.
