Butte County – PPO & EPO Networks

Posted by on Nov 15, 2013 in Important News | 0 comments

Blue Shield of CA, in Butte County, is going from a PPO (Preferred Provider Network) network to an EPO (Exclusive Provider Network). An EPO is similar to an HMO in that there is not coverage for out of network services, other than emergencies. Butte will be the only County north of Sacramento to have any network providers or facilities. Anthem Blue Cross is keeping it’s state wide PPO network but is reducing its overall network from 60k providers to 40K providers.

For employees that are better off in the exchange, I can help them enroll on-line or via paper application.
