Great news for families shopping for an individual healthcare policy- SOCPA docs have just been added to the Blue Shield of California Individual PPO tiered network of providers! (The tiered network includes PPO level plans, but does not include HMO plans.). Effective immediately, this means more options for our patients who are purchasing insurance through the Covered California healthcare exchange in addition to those shopping for an individual policy off the exchange. This information has not been updated as of yet on the Covered California website, so we do recommend that you call Blue Shield of California directly regarding verification of network participation.
In addition to the Blue Shield PPO tiered networks, we are included on the Covered California exchange in the Health Net PPO network, Anthem Blue Cross PPO and EPO networks, and also continue our role as CalOptima providers through Monarch for those who qualify.
As always, please consult your health insurance carrier directly to confirm that SOCPA doctors participate in your specific plan choice. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Billing Office at (949) 380-0889.
