The plan list is peculiar when you search the way you describe. You’ll find a bunch of Employer, National, Medicare, and International Plans, and under Individual and Family plans there are National plans and something called Traditional. I think these may be grandfathered plans.

Do you believe any of these are the 2014/2015 Pathway or Pathway-X networks? My PCP shows up here, but he is not participating in the new IFPs. If I click his name there is no indication he is participating in the new networks or plans. No metal tiers listed. Just Traditional and other plans

Also, this is their old search tool. If you go through the whole quote process, make up a name and enter your birthday, you get a list of plans, by default off-exchange but you can click on exchange too, and there is a link, on top, “Show me my doctors” You get a completely different kind of provider search tool. My doctor is not listed - which is correct.

While Blue Shield and Health Net make their provider searches directly accessible and you can easily select the Covered CA and metals, the opposite is true for Anthem. You have to go through a very tedious process to reach the right provider search tool.

If you can find a more direct way - I’d love to know it.

This was true in 2013 too. Last year they actually only provided a PDF until very late, either late December or early January.
