Anthem Issues Addendum Clarifying Self-Funded Arragements

Jan 07, 2011


Anthem Blue Cross has issued the following ADDENDUM TO CLARIFICATION SELF-FUNDED ARRANGEMENTS:
 

"Anthem Blue Cross does not endorse or encourage the use of our products with a self-funded arrangement. This includes, but is not limited to, the "wrapping" or self-funding for any annual deductible, copayment, coinsurance or out-of-pocket expense to which the member is subjected.  As an addendum to the Clarification regarding Small Group Employer Self-Funded Arrangements, however, Anthem Blue Cross will now permit the sale of the Elements Hospital Plan (including the Elements Preferred and the Elements Plus plans) and our existing EPO plan in conjunction with any other health plans that provide coverage for professional fee services including, without limitation, the Basic Plus plan offered by Redwood Health Services."

Anthem Blue Cross continues to examine their approach to this policy and reserve the right to make additional changes in the future.
