Anthem Blue Cross Supporting People Affected by California Wildfires

Anthem is taking action to help people affected by the wildfires in Lake, Mariposa, Mendocino, Napa, Riverside and Shasta counties by revising medical and pharmacy guidelines that will help ensure members can continue care and access needed prescription medications. The items pertaining to pharmacy apply to Anthem’s relationship with Express Scripts. It’s important that our members know what Anthem is doing for our members in the above mentioned areas during this critical time.

For impacted members, Anthem is:

  • Relaxing time limits for prior authorization, pre-certification and referral requirements – there will be no late penalties.
  • Suspending early refill limits for prescriptions.
  •  Allowing replacement of medical equipment or supplies.
  • Extending filing deadlines for claims.

These medical and pharmacy guidelines are effective from July 26, 2018 until August 25, 2018, unless further extended.

For additional questions, members should call the phone number on the back of their membership card as associates are standing by to help.
