Prompt written notice of a closed practice status prevents member servicing delays. Are you accepting new patients? Your practice status — open or closed — must be reflected accurately in our provider directories. California law requires that participating healthcare providers notify health plans within five days when their Accepting New Patients status changes.


Refer to the Anthem Blue Cross — California Facility and Professional Provider Manual for timeframes and information about reporting your practice status and other related information about your practice.
