Wildfire Alert: Emergency Coverage for CA Members

Sep 22, 2015

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. declared a state of emergency in California on September 11, 2015, due to the effects of the Valley and Butte fires. This extends the provisions of his earlier Executive Order dated August 27, 2015 and applies them to Amador, Calaveras, Lake and Napa counties. As a result, Anthem Blue Cross continues to make sure members affected by the California wildfires can get the medical care they need.
If you have clients who have been impacted and live in Amador, Calaveras, Lake and Napa counties, here’s what they should know:
Except for refilling lost or damaged drugs, members must call Member Services to ask that any of the above adjustments be made to their benefits. Members needing additional support should also call the Member Services number on their ID card.
These medical and pharmacy guidelines are effective immediately until October 9, 2015, unless extended. These guidelines do not apply to Medicare Advantage members, as Medicare Advantage has specific guidelines.
