having trouble with our Insurance

I started the insurance with Health keepers first day of March. I Live on the VA & NC line have been seeing my doctors in Mt Airy for 38 years these doctors have all my health history. Mt Airy is 10 min from my house it is the closest doctors to me and ER hospital . this insurance says I can no longer use my doctors in NC. I have to use only doctors in VA. Anthem BCBS told me I am only covered in the state of VA, and if I go to any other doctor out of my state or hospital it has to be life or death. So if I get sick traveling my insurance will not cover me out of state. I am having problem with my thumb need surgery bone spurs and thumb is dislocating from socket Anthem BCBS has denied my surgeon because he is in NC this is a doctor I trust who has worked on me and other family members. Anthem BCBS wants me to travel up the mountain 1 hour away to Stuart, Galax ,Hillsville, or 2 hours to Wytheville to find me new health providers. If I cant use my doctors 10 min. from me my only solution is to stop my insurance and try to pay for my own health problem's my self. What good is Insurance if it wont pay for doctors I trust with my life. I do not want to start over with doctors I don't know and trust. I was also told that VA dose not offer any PPO plans where you have the right to pick and choose your own doctors. You have to use who Anthem tells you to use in VA. WHY IS THIS HAPPINING ? you stated that we could keep our doctors and Insurance, Now My husbands health plan will no longer be offered as of Aug 1 2014 this is a grandfather plan he will not have a PPO plan with Anthem BCBS he has had before any of this started. and now his Insurance is going to go up to $550.25 now 200.00 more a month and his doctors will no longer be in there net work either...I want you to know that we are not satisfied and we will have to let our Ins go. WE live closer to NC for our health needs and my husband has been seen here all his life 53years and me 38 years we have used doctors in MT Airy, This is not what you told us on the adds on TV. Please fix the problem with VA'S Insurance we have no PPO plans and cant go out of our State for health care WHY????????
