Marin Independent Journal

Nearly 700 Medicare beneficiaries in Marin County will be forced to switch their Medicare Advantage health plans by Dec. 7 because Anthem Blue Cross has withdrawn its plan.

Marin County has 46,757 Medicare beneficiaries, including 16,460 enrolled in Medicare Advantage.

“Anthem has made a difficult decision to non-renew our Medicare Advantage Freedom Blue RPPO plan in an effort to effectively manage financial and operational performance of our Medicare business,” said Darrel Ng, a spokesman for the company.
