Premiums and cost-sharing

There is no premium for this plan, but you may:

  • Have to pay for some services. Sometimes the state will tell you what you have to pay for services. See Long-Term Services and Supports for more information.
  • Need to follow certain rules to have Anthem Blue Cross pay for your services. You might need to get a referral, which is when your primary doctor (your PCP) fills out a form for you to get specialty services.
  • Have a copay for some drugs, depending on how much money you make. Generic drugs can cost $0 to $3.40, and brand-name drugs can cost $0 to $8.50. Look in your Drug List (formulary) to see what drugs have a copay.
  • Need to use providers in our network for services to be covered (paid for), unless you have gotten prior approval (prior authorization) from us, your doctor or your medical group.
