Anthem Implements Rescission Reform Early

May 12, 2010

Implementing federal rescission reforms early to help improve the lives and care of our members


Maintaining health care coverage, regardless of health - this is a key component of health care reform. With this legislation, health care insurers will give members more security by implementing federal rescission reforms. By Sept. 23, 2010, the industry can only rescind (cancel) policies for members that intentionally misrepresent material facts or are involved in fraud.

Anthem knows this coverage change is important to their members. That's why they implemented this federal legislation beginning May 1 - well ahead of the required implementation date. They are the first insurer to announce the implementation of this provision. They hope by doing this earlier than required, members will feel more secure about their health care coverage - no matter their personal situation - in this time of change. This is an important step in health care reform. Anthem Blue Cross is  eager to lead the way with this and other changes, so that health care reform works for everyone.
