Anthem Blue Cross ("Anthem") has decided to discontinue the administration of its Nevada County Administrative Site effective March 1, 2010. In preparation of the dissolution, Anthem successfully negotiated a new contract with Sierra Nevada Medical Associates which generally has the same panel of primary care physicians and a wider selection of specialists than the Nevada County Administrative Site.
Members currently assigned to the Nevada County Administrative Site will transition to Sierra Nevada Medical Associates effective March 1, 2010. The good news is that most members will be able to maintain their relationship with their current primary care physician (PCP) because these doctors are affiliated with Sierra Nevada Medical Associates.
Letters were mailed to members who were affected by this change on December 30, 2009. Additionally, letters were sent to Large Group clients and brokers as well as to Individual and Small Group clients and agents on January 5, 2010.
