About Anthem

Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield is the largest provider in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield started in 1944. But in 2005 they merged with WellPoint Health Networks. Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance has a good track record in the health benefits industry. Proof of this is their consistent “A” rating from A.M. Best and Standard and Poor’s.

Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield’s main goal is to better the communities’ overall health and provide excellent care for all its members. Not only does it provide Medicare Supplement, but also Medicare Advantage and Part D plans. One of the benefits of being a member of Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield is as a member, you get prescription savings and prevention care, i.e. provided exercise programs. Because it does provide Medicare, it does allow for renewal annually, though they do not guarantee you’ll be covered each year.

It is a trading name in thirteen states. It is an HMO plan, LPPO plan, an RPPO plan, and a PDP with Medicare contract.
