Premium Deferral Option for 11/1, 12/1 & 1/1 Anthem New Business

Anthem encourages brokers and groups to submit early for November, December and January case. However, they realize that money may be tight during these continued unprecedented times and having to maintain their current coverage while making the change to Anthem. With that said Anthem is offering new cases the option to defer their first month’s premium with the following requirements during this peak season:


  • The case MUST use Anthem’s ACH/EFT payment method 
  • The premium will be run the 15th of the month prior to the effective date – for example: 
    • November 1st effective date - premium run date is 10/15/2021
    • December 1st effective date - premium run date is 11/15/2021
    • January 1st effective date – premium run date is 12/15/2021
  • Further notation on the ACH/EFT form is required for groups to opt-in to the premium deferral. Please contact your B&P Sales Team for more information.


Anthem hopes this helps with getting cases in early and provides peace of mind for your clients.
