Anthem is a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange and is part of the S&P 500. Anthem offers a variety of plans to those who live in California, such as Blue Essential plans, Lumenos Health Savings Account plans, Premier Plans, and BlueAccess Value.
Monthly premiums range from $59 to $567 for individuals and $174 to $1,500 for families.
Anthem's most popular plans are Preferred Provider Organization plans and those that offer Health Savings Accounts. Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans are part of the main three health insurance plans such as Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans and Point of Service (POS) plans. Preferred Provider Organization plans are different from Health Maintenance Organization plans in that they allow members to choose out of network care providers, whereas HMOs require members to choose care from in-network care providers- doctors, hospitals and specialists.
Lumenos Health Savings Accounts are those that offer members the freedom to choose where their health care money is allocated. Members may choose to use their money for short-term expenses such as copays or long term expenses such as medical care down the road. Lumenos plans also offer 100% preventive care coverage and is flexible to the member's budget and designed to reduce out of pocket costs.
Anthem also offers DentalBlue for members which are network based PPO dental insurance products. The Dental Networks come within the 100 Network, the 200 Network and the 300 Network.
