The counties with access to the Freedom Blue PPO plan, also called an RPPO plan, are based on different service areas, says Anthem Blue Cross. After being approved for this health plan, the individual is able to go to any hospital, medical clinic or physician as long as they are in the plan’s network. The Anthem website provides an easy search tool to find a medical partner that works with this plan. Medicare part D benefits are also part of the plan.

Another benefit to the Freedom Blue PPO is that referrals are not needed in order to see a specialist or physician, notes Anthem Blue Cross. As long as the individual is seeing a specialist within the plan, he can simply go to that specialist. Plan benefits only begin after meeting the deductible. There is a summary of benefits on the website to explain the deductible and other plan fees. While referrals aren’t required, some services may require pre-certification before going to the specialist.
