My CIGNA provider/doctor is not part of the Anthem/Blue Card PPO network. Can I continue seeing him/her after January 1, 2017?

Anthem has a ‘transition of care’ program for individuals who are currently undergoing a course of treatment for a serious condition and whose provider is not in the network. If approved, a participant can continue seeing their current provider until treatment is complete, and it is safe to transition to a new provider. Generally speaking eligibility includes:
1. If you are in an active course of treatment for an acute or serious chronic condition.
2. If you are pregnant, regardless of trimester.
3. If you have a terminal illness.
4. If you have a newborn child between the ages of birth and 36 months, completion of covered services may be provided for a period of time necessary to complete a course of treatment and to arrange for a safe transfer to another provider.
5. If you have an authorized surgery or other procedure scheduled to occur within 180 days of the effective date of coverage for yourself or a newly covered enrollee.
