That's what I got...Anthem Blue Cross Gold - PPO C. I was going to do A but it was $100 more a month and the only real difference is that A was "Advantage" and C was "Select" PPO network(didn't read enough to determine the difference but I assume it relates to who accepts my insurance), that and the out of pocket max was a little lower($500 IIRC something like $3k vs $3.5K); the deductibles were the same as was copay, etc.. I wonder if the prices were different because I am working for a CA company? Or did you sign up dependents(family)?
I mainly signed up for Dental as I need some major work done(but I figured I should get medical while I am at it). It's usually cheaper long term to drop dental and find a doctor that will give you a cash discount for cleanings/exams/etc(unless you need major work done as stated).
Not sure where you're living but in the Tulsa are the difference between the two networks is HUGE. One includes the St. Francis/St. Johns network, the other doesn't.
