Henry County and Henry County Public Schools offer Medicare Advantage option
Effective July 1, 2020, Henry County and Henry County Public Schools will offer an Anthem Medicare Preferred (PPO) Medicare Advantage Plan with Part D (MAPD). Retirees with Medicare Parts A and B are eligible to enroll in the MAPD plan. The plan includes the National Access Plus benefit, which allows retirees to receive services from any provider, as long as the provider is eligible to receive payments from Medicare. The MAPD plan offers the same hospital and medical benefits that original Medicare covers and also covers additional benefits that original Medicare does not, such as an annual routine physical exam, hearing, LiveHealth Online* tool and SilverSneakers®.*
The prefix on Henry County and Henry County Public Schools member ID cards will be VAY. The cards will also show the Henry County and Henry County Public Schools name and National Access Plus icon.
Providers may submit claims electronically using the electronic payer ID for the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) plan in their state or submit a UB-04 or CMS-1500 form to the Anthem plan in their state. Do not file claims with original Medicare. Contracted and non-contracted providers may call the provider services number on the back of the member ID card for benefit eligibility, prior authorization requirements and any questions about Henry County and Henry County Public Schools member benefits or coverage.
Detailed prior authorization requirements also are available to contracted providers by accessing the Availity Portal* at https://www.availity.com.
