Providers in Regions 1, 7, 9, 10 and 12

If you are already participating in the Pathway (on and off exchange) network located in one of these regions, you will continue to provide services to Anthem patients who have purchased coverage on and off exchange as you currently do under your Anthem provider agreement. 

 

Providers in Region 13 and 14

If you participated in the Pathway (on and off exchange) network in 2017, we have reinstated your participation in the Individual Pathway EPO network under your Anthem provider agreement.  We have further extended participation to providers who previously did not participate in the Anthem Individual Pathway EPO network.  A communication has been sent to both previously participating providers and new providers in the Pathway EPO network.
