EPOs are a great option for your clients

Word & Brown received the following announcement from CaliforniaChoice:

If your clients want access to a great provider network and competitive rates, an EPO or Exclusive Provider Organization plan may be the perfect solution. And with an Anthem Blue Cross EPO, clients get access to the Prudent Buyer Network! That’s right, you can offer Prudent Buyer without a PPO.

An EPO is a type of health plan that offers a full-network of doctors and hospitals from which to choose. An EPO is usually less expensive than a PPO plan.

EPO Advantages:

  • EPOs can be a more affordable option than a PPO.
  • Anthem’s Prudent Buyer Network is available and offers 90% of doctors and hospitals in the United States through the BlueCard® Program.
  • Oscar’s EPO network includes top hospitals and providers in Los Angeles and Orange counties. Learn more.
  • Employees do not have to get a “referral” to see an in-network specialist.
  • CaliforniaChoice offer EPOs from both Anthem Blue Cross and Oscar in all four metal tiers.
