As a reminder, please periodically log into Availity’s Provider Online Reporting tool to make sure you don’t miss any notifications placed for your review. Here is a recap of the tool and instructions on how to sign up and access your notifications.


In the June 2020 Provider News, we announced the release of Provider Contract and Fee Schedule Notifications via Availity – our secure, Web-based provider tool.  With this new automated process, when Anthem notifies you in writing of a statewide fee schedule update or provider contract amendment, you can log into Availity any time to securely access and download a digital copy of your amendment documents using the Provider Online Reporting tool in Availity.


Keep in mind that only authorized users in your practice or facility can view the confidential contract amendments using the reporting tool.  Your Availity administrator must grant access to the reporting tool if you do not currently have access.  For easy reference, we’re again including the information to help you get started with Provider Contract and Fee Schedule Notifications if needed.
