Always check with the doctor or medical facility directly to confirm that they accept Anthem Blue Cross before you receive treatment.
Information about Prescription Drugs
Pharmacy benefits are managed by Anthem Blue Cross. Please see the Anthem Blue Cross website (link below) to find a participating pharmacy near you, or call (800) 888-2108. If you visit a non-network pharmacy, you will need to pay for the prescription in full and then submit a claim for reimbursement.
