UK-PPO Summary of Benefits

With the PPO option, participating providers agree to accept Anthem’s determination of reasonable allowable charges as payment in full. The PPO plan provides a large number of providers, including UK HealthCare facilities (such as Chandler Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, and Kentucky Clinics), UK HealthCare physicians and Anthem BlueCross and BlueShield network.

Under either PPO: copayments, deductibles and expenses for mental health and substance abuse do NOT accrue toward the maximum out-of-pocket limit.

Prior authorization is required for the following services: durable medical equipment (over $750), home health care and hospice services and other services as listed in the certificate of coverage.
