Anthem's Discontinued Plans Effective October 1, 2012

Jul 09, 2012


Certain plans will be discontinued effective 10/1/12 (on a group’s renewal anniversary).

From time to time, Anthem reviews their health plans to make sure they address your clients’ health care and cost needs. In their most recent review, they made the careful decision to discontinue certain health plans from our portfolios. These are the plans:

*This plan will be discontinued effective 7/1/12.

Why the plans are being discontinued.

There are several reasons why they're discontinuing the plans: 1) The need to streamline their portfolio. 2) Similarities to other plans due to benefit mandates (for example, Elements Hospital plan and BeneFits Hospital plan). 3) Declining interest in the plans.

Chart shows plans that affected employees will transition to at renewal.

Please check over this chart. It shows you the plans which are being discontinued. It also shows the plans employees will transition to at renewal — unless their group chooses to move to a plan other than the one suggested. If your clients are impacted, your renewal packet will give you instructions on how your client can make changes.
