The Blue Distinction Specialty Care Program —
expert care for less
Hospitals are named as Blue Distinction Centers based
on certain criteria. These hospitals are selected for their
expert health care team, the number of times they’ve done
a procedure and their track record in specialized care. You
deserve peace of mind when you make important health
care choices with your doctor. Having access to the Blue
Distinction Centers and Blue Distinction Centers+ makes
these choices simpler.
Getting care when you need it
You could save time and money if you know where to go
when you need care. If your doctor isn’t available, choose
from the options below. They often take less time than the
ER and cost about the same as a doctor visit. Plus, most
are open weeknights and weekends. Not all facilities and
types of care are available in all areas.
Retail health clinic. This is staffed by health care experts
who give basic health care services to “walk-in” patients.
It’s often inside a major pharmacy or retail store.
Walk-in doctor’s office. This doctor’s office doesn’t require
you to be an existing patient or have an appointment. The
office handles mostly routine care and common illnesses.
Urgent care center. This has a group of doctors who treat
conditions that aren’t as serious as emergencies but
should be looked at right away. This center can often do
X-rays, lab tests and stitches.
To find a doctor, retail health clinic or urgent care center
in our network, go to Select Find a Doctor
and follow the numbered steps.
When to use the ER
Always call 911 or go to the ER if you think you could put
your health at serious risk by delaying care.
Imaging and sleep management program
When you need imaging services like MRIs and CT Scans
or a sleep study, we can help you get quality service
at a lower cost.
Imaging services. If your doctor refers you to an imaging
provider, Anthem will review the referral. If there are more
cost effective, quality choices, we’ll call to let you know
what they are. You can go with your doctor’s referral or
with one of the imaging providers we suggest.
Sleep studies. If your doctor refers you for a sleep study or
any sleep-related equipment or supplies, your doctor should
call Anthem before you have any tests done or supplies sent
to you. Depending on your health, you may be able to do the
study in your home.
Anthem will discuss the guidelines with your doctor and
provide instructions on where to get materials and supplies
to do your sleep study at home.
Your doctor needs to call the number on the back of your
card to request your participation in these programs:
High Tech Imaging/Sleep Mgmt 1-888-953-6703.
