Phone surveys of doctors listed in June provider directors for Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of California concluded that a quarter of the doctors listed by the plans were not at the location listed or were not willing to accept Covered California patients, according to reports released by the California Department of Managed Health Care.
