Using Your Health Insurance in the SFO Bay Area

Find a doctor that accepts your health insurance at one of these two medical group websites: Sutter or Hill Physicians. Enter your health plan, doctor type (Primary Care or specialty) and zip code for a doctor search. International students should use the Anthem Blue Cross Provider Network assistance online at the GGH Benefits Portal or search for a doctor using the Anthem Blue Cross Website Doctor Search Tool. In the field for "select a plan/network," choose the section "Medical Employer Sponsored" and the seventh option in that group called Blue Cross PPO Prudent Buyer (Large Group).
