Participating Health Care Partners

Anthem Blue Cross PPO Enhanced Care Coordination

UCSF is working with Anthem Blue Cross to give you access to more information — and a whole team of health care professionals — to better support you in managing your health care needs and help you stay healthy.

Anthem Blue Cross PPO members who regularly receive care from UCSF for ongoing health services are welcome to participate in Anthem Blue Cross PPO Enhanced Care Coordination. Your benefit plan will stay the same, and there will be no change to your health care eligibility with Anthem Blue Cross. The only difference is that you will have access to an expanded team of health care professionals who will work directly with you and your primary care physician to develop a personalized health care plan and support you in meeting your health goals.

Your team at UCSF and Anthem Blue Cross will set up extra care when you need it and give you the support and resources you need most. Depending on your needs, your team may include:

  • Your UCSF doctor
  • A Care Support Team member will work with you to make managing your health care easier. (This is in addition to your doctor or other providers that you currently see.)
  • A care coordinator when you are at a rehabilitation facility or discharged to your home.
  • A clinical pharmacist who can assist you with understanding your medications.

Cigna PPO Collaborative Accountable Care

This valuable resource is part of the services provided by UCSF at no added cost to you. You are automatically enrolled with no action required on your part.
