Anthem Blue Cross

Our agreement with Blue Cross — effective Jan. 1, 2011 — gives Community Hospital tier-one, preferred status with employers that offer a tiered system of health insurance coverage and continues our longstanding, in-network status for all other Anthem Blue Cross plans offered locally.

Employers currently offering a tiered benefit structure and receiving Community Hospital’s tier-one, preferred status are CalPERS (California Public Employees' Retirement System), and MPC (Monterey Peninsula College).

What does tier-one status mean at Community Hospital versus other lower-tier hospitals?

  • You will pay the lowest out-of-pocket costs available through your Anthem Blue Cross plan.
  • You will have the lowest level of co-pays and co-insurances.
  • You will pay the lowest possible deductibles.
  • You will have access, at the lowest possible costs, to all Community Hospital-based doctors for whom the hospital bills — for example, radiologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and Emergency department physicians, among others.

Blue Shield

Our agreement with Blue Shield — effective Jan. 1, 2011 — now includes the hospital-based doctors for whom Community Hospital bills — for example, the specialties of radiology, radiation oncology, pathology, psychiatry, and emergency medicine, among others. All will be considered in-network providers on all Blue Shield plans. That means lower out-of-pocket costs for our patients for these doctors' services.

In addition, we are an in-network provider of the Blue Shield Life and Health insurance plan.
