Anthem Alerts Consumers Regarding Email Scam

Thirty-seven independent companies operate in various locations across the United States and Puerto Rico to form the Blue Cross and Blue Shield network. This network enables you to receive the same health insurance benefits for any medical care you may need while living or traveling within the coverage areas of any other Blue Cross Blue Shield company.

In those instances, your medical claim is sent, on your behalf, from the Blue Cross Blue Shield company that received it to your local Blue Cross Blue Shield company that maintains your healthcare plan. This process ensures that your claim is processed based on your personal benefit plan, while receiving the discounts agreed upon between the provider and the Blue Cross Blue Shield company that received it while you were living or traveling outside of your Blue Cross Blue Shield company’s coverage area.

Therefore, if you received care in any of the Anthem locations (listed below) within the past 10 years, your claims experience may have been retained in Anthem’s database.

Some or all of the states:  California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Virginia or Wisconsin.

Anthem is an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association
