Will changing your address kick you out of a grandfathered plan?

I’m on a grandfathered/pre-ACA Anthem PPO plan. When I signed up for the plan I lived in a different state that I live in now (I’ve moved out of my parents’ house in the past decade ;)). I know that making significant changes to a grandfathered plan can cause you to be kicked off that plan. Does anyone know if moving states is one of those significant changes? My understanding is that premiums are estimated by where you live and therefore might be major enough to kick you off.

I haven’t had any limitations to the network access since it’s a nationwide PPO and I’ve used my insurance in my new state without issue. Receiving bills, notices, bills, etc. isn’t an issue because they go to my parents’ address. I’m just worried about asking the folks at Anthem directly for the fear it will trigger a string of actions that will ultimately end with me not having healthcare. I’m also afraid if I go to the hospital, incur a large medical expense, etc. it’ll just be a reason for them to kick me off my health plan and leave me for the wolves. Age: 41, zip: 27701, income: ~$40-50k (self-employed, so it varies at the moment).
