600 N. Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012 | Tel (213) 674-3701 or (888) 252-7721 | Fax (213) 674-3715 | www.lapra.org We've received multiple inquiries recently regarding the lawsuit filed by Consumer Watchdog, a nonprofit organization based in Santa Monica, against Anthem Blue Cross.
The lawsuit filed by Consumer Watchdog pertains only to Anthem's medical plans offered through the Covered California Insurance Exchange. Anthem has changed the products it offers through the Exchange to narrow network plans, known as Exclusive Provider Plans, or EPOs. The change does not apply to employer plans, only to those individuals who buy private health plans through the Exchange.
If you are enrolled in LAPRA's Anthem Blue Cross PPO or HMO medical plans, your coverage is not affected.
If you have any questions or concerns about this issue, please call Anthem Blue Cross at 800.289.2250.
