Product Types Offered


Whether you’re self-employed, between jobs, have no health benefits at work, or want to retire early, an Individual health care plan can protect your health, as well as your finances. Even if you’re healthy right now, you never know what the future holds. And if you wait until you become ill or injured, you may not qualify for coverage.

There are three basic types of plans:

Individual PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) health plans
No matter what doctor you choose, these plans pay a percentage of your eligible medical expenses after you meet an annual deductible. However, you’ll save the most when you use doctors or hospitals in our PPO network. 

  • Individual Lumenos® HSA, HIA and HIA Plus health plans
  • PPO Share Plans
  • SmartSense®
  • RightPlan PPO 40
  • Tonik® health plans

Individual Short-Term PPO health plans
If you’re a recent graduate or starting a new job, these plans offer the short-term coverage you may need until your permanent health coverage begins. The policy is non-renewable and designed to meet your health plan needs while you are between other coverage. 

Individual HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) health plans
With these easy-to-use plans, you’ll choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP) from our HMO network and pay set copays for doctor visits. Includes prescription drug coverage and maternity benefits. 

  • Select HMO Plan
  • HMO Saver Plan

Medicare Plans

A Medicare Supplement Plan is a health benefit coverage plan that complements (or supplements) your regular Medicare coverage. 

Although Medicare pays for many health care services and supplies, it doesn’t pay for all of them. A Medicare Supplement Plan will help pay for those costs which could include deductibles, coinsurance and copayments when visiting your doctor. An Anthem Medicare Supplemental Plan is also a good idea if you prefer to keep your own doctor and hospital and choose your own specialist and other health care provider. 

Anthem’s Medicare Supplement plans are available in five standardized plan designs: A, B, F, I, J, L and SmartChoice (High Deductible F). All plans provide government-prescribed Basic Benefits.
