Anthem Blue Cross of California
Anthem Blue Cross is one of the largest managed health care companies in California. It is an independent licensee of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association based in Thousand Oaks, California. Anthem and its affiliates serve over 8 million Californians and have offered Covered California plans since 2014.
Anthem is pleased to announce that we are expanding our participation in an additional six regions for 2020. In addition to currently offering plans in regions 1 (Northern California counties), 7 (Santa Clara County), and 10 (San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Mariposa and Tulare counties), Anthem will also offer plans in regions 9 (Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey counties), 11 (Fresno, King and Madera counties,) 12 (San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties), 15 (Los Angeles County East), 16 (Los Angeles County West), and 17 (Inland Empire).
Anthem is working with doctors and hospitals that share responsibility for increasing access to appointments, improving the member experience, and providing a more coordinated treatment plan to patients.
We also want to help our members spend more time focused on their health and less time managing the ins and outs of health care. That’s why Anthem is driving meaningful change through technology to deliver an easier to use, more complete web and mobile health care experience.
Anthem’s new pharmacy benefits manager, IngenioRx, not only manages Anthem drug plans, it also offers better support to our members. This means members will have around-the-clock access to teams of specialists, online tools that can be used at home or on the go, and the ease of managing health and drug plans in one place.
Mobile and Online options Meet Sydney, Anthem’s new mobile app designed to provide members a more personal, simplified experience.
