As a Participating Provider with the Anthem Blue Cross Workers’ Compensation Network you have agreed to treat injured workers and accept reimbursement from “Other Payors” per your Provider Agreement.  To access the listing of Other Payors in our Network Leasing Arrangement publication, go online to: > Log into Availity > Payer Spaces > Anthem Blue Cross > Education and Reference Center > Administrative Support > Network Leasing Arrangements”.

The Other Payor listing is updated monthly. All Other Payors listed have signed an agreement with Anthem Blue Cross Workers’ Compensation to access the workers’ compensation network.

Farmers Insurance and its affiliates will be listed as an Other Payor for workers’ compensation effective October 1st 2019 in the Anthem Workers’ Compensation section of our Network Leasing Arrangement publication. Farmers Insurance will make the entire Anthem Blue Cross Workers’ Compensation Network available to injured workers participating in the Anthem Premier Plus Medical Provider Network (MPN) , to the extent the injured worker is approved to treat with a participating provider outside of the Anthem Premier Plus MPN.  Therefore, in the near future you may see a difference in reimbursement to certain bills that have been repriced to your Anthem Blue Cross contract rate.

If you have any questions regarding your reimbursement rates, please contact Anthem Blue Cross Workers’ Compensation Customer Relations at:  1-866-700-2168
