Garden Grove Unified School District






HMO members,


Recently, you may have received a letter from United Healthcare (UHC) indicating your HMO medical coverage terminates on 1/1/17.


You will continue to have HMO medical coverage and no action is required at this time.  Your HMO plan will be provided by Anthem Blue Cross from 1/1/17-12/31/17.


Anthem mailed identification cards to you in December 2016.


Your Primary Care Physician (PCP) and Medical Group will remain the same with Anthem. Members whose providers are affected by the change to Anthem have already been notified.


You may want to verify provider contract with Anthem HMO for any Mental and Behavioral Health providers seen outside of your Medical Group. Provider search instructions are available under "Information and Presentations".
