University of California Health and Insurance Coverage for Residents and Fellows

Emergency Room Coverage

Most emergency rooms (ER) are in-network, meaning they have a contract with Anthem Blue Cross.

In rare cases, you may need to get care at an out-of-network ER. If you get a bill for an out-of-network ER visit, call Anthem before paying it. They can help you understand your responsibility and advocate on your behalf for a lower bill.
