Anthem's New Resources Help with COVID-19 Mental and Social Needs

Apr 08, 2020

As the nation comes together to address the COVID-19 crisis, the health and well-being of Anthem's members continues to be their primary concern. The outbreak and effect of COVID-19 can be overwhelming. Social and emotional well-being is key to members’ whole health. That’s why Anthem has partnered with leading community and health organizations to provide new resources and tools to help their members navigate potential stress and anxiety and find important social services such as help with food, housing, job training, and transportation during this challenging time. 

 

Anthem remains deeply committed to supporting you and their members as everyone faces the daily realities of COVID-19 together.

 

New resources include:

 

COVID-19 Mental health resource hub

Anthem has joined with Psych Hub, a free digital hub to help Anthem members with the stress resulting from COVID-19. This hub brings together a variety of resources to help members cope with social isolation, job loss and mental health issues. 

 

Aunt Bertha social support services

During this time, Anthem understands members may need help with food, housing, job training, transportation and other social support. Anthem is partnering with Aunt Bertha to connect individuals and families to social services in their communities. Members can access these services by visiting Aunt Bertha and entering their ZIP code.

 

Employee Assistance Program (EAP) resources

To help their members who need more mental health support, Anthem is providing access to their EAP website resources at no cost through June 30, 2020, to members who don’t already have it. Members can go to Anthem's EAP website to access online seminars on emotional support and up-to-date links to news outlets and health websites. Other resources include helpful articles, child and eldercare resources, and legal and financial information. Members can access the website using the password EAP Can Help.

 

Locate a COVID-19 testing facility

Members can quickly locate a COVID-19 testing facility near them with Anthem's locator tool by downloading the Sydney Care mobile app.  

 

Go to Anthem's COVID-19 website for additional information and resources available to you and your clients.  

 

During this time of stress and uncertainty, Anthem's mission remains unchanged — to improve lives and the health of their communities. Anthem will continue to monitor COVID-19 and keep you informed of any new resources that can help you and your clients.
