Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield reviews

"The group plan I had that was good except it expired and the new individual policy is terrible. The lists of in network doctors is worthless. Customer service is filled with conflicting information. I have no idea if anything I need will be covered. Fortunately the majority of my cancer was under the old group plan. I had anal cancer so I attest to how painful having your anus and genitals burned is and its more painful having to deal with this company. I will probably die of stress first. My two options for a difficult polyp surgery is one doctor who isn't accepting patients or a 70 year old guy ready to retire. I'm not holding my breath that my 'continuation of care referral' will go through. I will get as many financial institutions to write off charges because Anthem's individual plans are designed to never let you find a doctor or count on reimbursement when you do. Prior authorization for prescriptions is a joke. You can only get a 30 day supply at the retail level. Mail order is at least two weeks. Its cheaper to just pay out of pocket with a coupon. Also the list of in network doctors includes the public health department....I'm paying $751.00 a month for this."
