Volvo Group North American offers Medicare Advantage option
Effective January 1, 2022, Volvo Group North America will offer a Medicare Preferred PPO plan through Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Retirees with Medicare Parts A and B are eligible to enroll in the local preferred provider organization (LPPO) product. The plan includes the National Access Plus benefit, which allows members to receive services from any provider, as long as the provider is eligible to receive payments from Medicare.
The Medicare Advantage plan offers the same hospital and medical benefits that Medicare covers, while covering additional benefits that Medicare does not, such as LiveHealth Online®* and SilverSneakers.®* Volvo Group North America member copay or coinsurance percentage will be the same whether their provider is in- or out-of-network. Locally or nationwide, doctors or hospitals, member share-of-cost (SOC) doesn’t change.
The prefix on Volvo Group North America member ID cards will be VAY. The cards will also show the Volvo Group North America name, along with Medicare Advantage and PPO icons. Providers should follow their normal claim filing procedures for 2022 Volvo Group North America member claims.
Claims should not be filed 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 regarding Volvo Group North America member benefits or coverage.
Detailed prior authorization requirements also are available to contracted providers by accessing the Availity* Provider Self-Service Tool at https://www.availity.com.
If you have questions regarding eligibility, prior authorization requirements, or any questions about the Volvo Group North America member benefits or coverage, call Provider Services at 833-848-8730.
