As a COVID-19 exception, effective from March 19, 2020, through April 11, 2023, Anthem’s affiliated health plans will cover telephonic-only visits with in-network providers. Out-of-network coverage will be provided where required by law. This includes covered visits for mental health or substance use disorders and medical services, for our fully-insured employer plans, individual plans and Medicaid plans, where permissible. From March 19, 2020, through April 11, 2023, Anthem will cover and waive cost shares for telephonic-only visits with in-network providers for our Medicare Advantage plans. Cost shares will be waived for in-network providers only. We encourage our self-funded customers to participate, and many of them have opted in.
