2-50: Anthem to Make Change to Their Medical Plan Regulatory Filings

Jul 17, 2013

Change coming in 2014 to Anthem’s Small Group medical plans for Health Care Reform

In 2014, Anthem will make a change to their regulatory filings our 2-50 Small Group medical plans. Please note that they’re not leaving the California Small Group market.

Starting January 1, 2014, Anthem will no longer issue new Small Group medical plans under Anthem Blue Cross Life and Health. Those plans have been filed with the California Department of Insurance (CDI). Instead, they’ll file those plans under Anthem Blue Cross with the Department of Managed Health Care.

With this change, Anthem will no longer amend or renew active Small Group medical plans upon renewal on or after January 1, 2014. 

The plans that will be affected by this change are:

This change won't affect Small Group dental, vision or life plans filed with the CDI.  Anthem will continue to offer those plans to Small Groups.

Anthem will send a notice to all impacted 2-50 Small Groups about the change.  Those groups will also get more information 90 days before their renewal.  They'll have the choice (upon renewal) to move to any Anthem Blue Cross Small Group HIX plan(s) without their employees needing underwriting.
