51+: New Anthem Elements Choice EQ Portfolio

May 15, 2014

​Anthem Blue Cross is the solution for employer ACA mandates. No census required. Simple underwriting rules.

Health Care Reform has transformed the health care marketplace and brought many changes and challenges – one of which is the Employer Mandate. At Anthem, they have the solution to meet that requirement.

They are excited to introduce their NEW Large Group Anthem Elements Choice EQ Portfolio built specifically to meet the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Employer Mandate requirement.

Available to businesses with 51 or more employees.

This portfolio is being made available NOW effective October 1, 2014 so that your clients can take advantage of enrolling their employees working 30-39 hours and to implement this important coverage.
