If Anthem is due a refund as a result of an overpayment discovered by a Provider or Facility, refunds can be made in one of the following ways:

  • Submit a refund check with supporting documentation outlined below, or
  • Submit the Provider Refund Adjustment Request Form with supporting documentation to have claim adjustment/recoupment done off a future remittance advice

 

When voluntarily refunding Anthem on a Claim overpayment, please include the following information:

  • Provider Refund Adjustment Request Form (see directions below for how to access online)
  • All documents supporting the overpayment including EOBs from Anthem and other carriers as appropriate
  • Covered Individual ID number
  • Covered Individual’s name
  • Claim number
  • Date of service
  • Reason for the refund (as indicated on the form of common overpayment reasons)

 

Please be sure the copy of the provider remittance advice is legible and the Covered Individual information that relates to the refund is circled. By providing this critical information, Anthem will be able to expedite the process, resulting in improved service and timeliness to Providers and Facilities.

 

Important Note: If a Provider or Facility is refunding Anthem due to coordination of benefits and the Provider or Facility believes Anthem is the secondary payer, please refund the full amount paid. Upon receipt and insurance primacy verification, the Claim will be reprocessed and paid appropriately.
