How to go about #Picking a HMO or PPO Primary Care Physician PCP – MD

PPO members for all Covered CA plans and maybe all? plans will now have a central point of contact PCP – Primary Care Physician, in the health system for receiving long-term, comprehensive, coordinated care for most health needs. PPO members are able to switch PCPs at any time. There is no action for members to take. Blue Shield will provide additional details on this new feature in the coming weeks.

Members of non-grandfathered PPO plans will continue to have the freedom to choose specialists and other providers – without referrals inside or outside the network – as they do now.

I am on SCAN currently and it’s not meeting my needs.

I want a low cost supplemental plan that covers me for the UCLA medical group.
Oct 15th is when my plan expires.

 

When you say supplement, I presume you mean Medi Gap, where you can go to any doctor or facility that accepts Medicare, right? All Medi Gap plans would pay for UCLA.

If I understand you correctly, your plan with SCAN expires 12.31.2019. October 15th is when you can pick a new Medicare Advantage plan.

See menu above for our  page for Blue Cross Medi Gap and Blue Shield Medi Gap, rates & benefits are there.  Email us for UHC information

If so how do I find a Doctor .

I can pay for what Medicare doesn’t cover

 

I am 70 years, one eye completely blind,

I was with AARP, till last December 2016,, but Beginning January 1, 2017 , they have dis enrolled me.

I make $855. From SSI Supplemental Security Income – Benefits and my husband who is enrolled with Kaiser gets $1045. Per month

This January I went to see my doctor and was surprised to be billed $495. Which is the 20 % That I need to pay….

Is there any place I can enroll for membership.

I’ll appreciate any advice

You have Medi-Cal don’t you as it’s automatic with SSI, right? So, that would allow Medi-Cal to pay the 20% wouldn’t it?

That might give you issues with Medi-Medi where Medi-Cal enrolls you in a Medicare Advantage plan themselves, but there are ways to get out of it.

If you do have Medi-Cal, that allows you to enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan throughout the year, not just during Open Enrollment.

So, the questions are:

What Medicare Advantage plan did you want to enroll in?
…It appears SCAN is the only plan UCLA takes from looking at their website. I don’t represent SCAN but can refer you to a friendly agent who does.

Did you submit the bill to Medi-Cal?

Is UCLA a Medi-Cal provider?

We found out that you can also apply for UCLA doctors through the ACO program – also know as Medicare Shared Savings Plan (MSSP). Here’s a UCLA link for information:
uclahealth.org/aco

 

Thank you very much for posting. Here’s more on the Shared Savings Program from CMS.Gov Section 3022 of ACA I wonder how many people that want to repeal Obamacare even know this is part of it? Here’s information on Blue Shield’s ACO for under 65. Use the menu above and check out Medi-Gap – Supplement plans.

    • You might check with the doctor or his IPA Medical Groups website.

      Then double check on the Insurance Companies Provider Finder.

      Blue Cross

      Blue Shield

      Our Quote Engines Provider Finder for ALL Companies

      Covered CA also has a tool… but I personally don’t like it. It forces you to get a quote first and it doesn’t save…

      See above on the website and below on our FAQ’s for details and video’s how to use each Insurance Companies provider finder.

      If you are getting your coverage from us, just tell us what MD’s you want and we can research it for you.

  1. I wanted to know if Cedars-Sinai Medical Group accepts Anthem Blue Cross.

    We have been with our pediatrician for some time and I’d like to continue with her, Dr. Kyle Monk.

  2. I just was informed that my Health Net insurance coverage issued by Los Angeles Unified School District will not enable me to continue with the Cedars Sinai Medical Associates that I’ve been covered under.

    Do you know if there is a way to continue this coverage using Anthem Blue Cross HMO or EPO with some type of supplemental insurance coverage that isn’t prohibitive cost wise?
