Coverage Synopsis:

This coverage will provide you with ZERO DEDUCTIBLE hospitalization coverage. You simply pay a $500 per day confinement charge for your first four days of coverage, and none thereafter. From there, Blue Cross Blue Shield will pay 60%, with you paying the remaining 40%. After $8,750 in qualified expenses, the plan then kicks in at 100% up to a lifetime benefit of $2 million per person. This means your maximum out of pocket exposure during the year (not including co-payments) would be $3,500. Your $500 per day confinement charge DOES count towards your $3,500 out of pocket limit.

This coverage would also provide you with an unlimited number of doctor visits each year, with a $40 co-payment per visit. 

Outpatient Prescriptions Drug coverage varies by policy, as follows:

 

RightPlan PPO 40 No Rx: Not covered.

This is a good option if you have been turned down previously by other companies due to the cost of your prescriptions. Since this plan does not offer any coverage for outpatient benefits, the underwrititing requirements are more leneient than Anthem plans offering prescription coverage.

RightPlan PPO 40 Generic Rx:

  • Tier 1 - You pay a generic formulary $10 co-payment
  • Brand name drugs are not covered

RightPlan PPO 40 Comprehensive Rx:

  • At a participating pharmacy up to a 34-day supply:
  • Tier 1 - You pay a generic formulary $10 co-payment

  • Tier 3 - You pay non-formulary 50% co-insurance
  • Tier 4 - You pay 30% co-insurance for self-administered injectables

Note: All brand name prescription drugs are subject to an annual $500 brand deductibls. The $500 brand deductible does not apply to the out-of-pocket annual maximum. 

Right Plan is only available to individual policy holders. If more than one person in your family is applying, you simply need to submit a separate application for each family member you would like to cover.

Underwriting:

Anthem has one of the easiest, most efficient underwriting teams in the industry. The process is very fast if no medical records are needed. While it is always a good idea to apply at least three weeks prior to the time you need your new coverage to take effect, most applications that are done online are approved by Anthem within 24 hours. If medical records must be ordered, the application process will take longer.

The company does have the right to accept or decline any individual or family application. Certain conditions may be waivered with a temporary rider (usually for one to two years), or an indefinite rider. If you are currently being treated for depression, anxiety, or high cholesterol, please let us know before you apply so we can avoid unnecessary delays in getting you covered.

Right Plan is the only policy offered by Blue Cross that may include a "rate up," or increase in your monthly premium due to a pre-existing health condition. By offering coverage with a rate up, Anthem is able to approve policies for applicants who they would otherwise decline.

For an infant less than 6 months of age, Anthem requires nursery records from the hospital where the infant was born, office records from the infant’s pediatrician, and results of the newborn screening laboratory tests (available from the hospital or pediatrician).

Effective dates:

The coverage can go into effect in as quickly as 24 hours, though the applicant risks being declined if claims are submitted before the underwriting process is completed. You may request an effective date any time after the date you sign the application and 60 days later. Please note that you will be billed starting on your requested effective date, even if you have not yet been notified that you have been approved. This is very good for someone who does not have any present coverage and would like for their benefits to begin right away. For those who are already covered, it is suggested that you maintain your current coverage in force until you have received notice from eitherColoHealthor directly from Anthem that your policy has been approved and is in force. 

Your earliest possible effective date will be the day after Anthem has received all the necessary documents and information needed to process your application.
