PolicyScout Review

When you are covered by Anthem, you want to make sure the healthcare professional you visit is covered in-network, or you could end up paying more for your care. Because Anthem is a large network, it has a solid financial rating of “A”/excellent by AM Best Company, Inc.

Anthem offers four comprehensive, complete health insurance plans to choose from. It’s important to remember that expenses such as balanced-billed charges and premiums are not included in the out-of-pocket limit.

Pros:

  • Anthem makes it easy to add dental, vision, and other types of insurance to your plan

  • Large network ensures that you can find providers in-network in your career

  • The mobile app is your “personal health alley” that offers information such as personalized wellness activities and more. Simply download the mobile app or log on to your account on the Anthem website to access your personalized information and services

  • Health screenings are covered (i.e., cholesterol, depression, diabetes, cancer, etc.)

  • Counseling for pregnant and breastfeeding women is covered

Cons:

  • Limited selection for family plans

  • Deductibles can be high, depending on your plan
