Consumer Complaint

Stan - Long Beach, CA - Anthem Blue Cross Long Beach Memorial bait and switch

Companies Involved: 
Anthem Blue Cross Long Beach Memorial
Issue Area: 
Heath Care

Received notice that LB Memorial is no longer in network; this is a huge bait and switch, since it is a main reason for joining Anthem in our area; hospital privileges are key component of a network - this action means all of our providers who would admit us to LBM can no longer do so. The alternatives are regional centers with substandard care in some areas, no care in others. Most certainly cannot handle complex cases.
