New provider directory indicators for medication assisted treatment providers
Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield will begin publishing new indicators in our online provider directories to help members easily identify facilities and physicians designated as medication assisted treatment (MAT) providers for opioid use disorder.
These directory indicators fall into four categories related to MAT:
- Facility that provides MAT
- Physician who provides MAT
- Facility with a certified opioid treatment program
- Facility that provides counseling for opioid use disorders
We encourage facilities and individual providers who provide these services to update their demographic information so these MAT indicators can be added to our directories. To submit updated professional demographic information, please visit anthem.com and locate the Provider Maintenance Form to submit changes to your information. For facility updates, please contact your provider network representative. Please contact Provider Services if you have any questions.
