You’ve just been given a little more time t0 enroll in 2015 health insurance!
Anthem has extended the deadline to enroll in its off-exchange individual health care plans to February 28.
Note: if you are eligible for financial assistance, you must purchase coverage through the exchange in order to collect your subsidy. The February 15 open enrollment deadline for exchange plans remains unchanged at this time.
Apply for Anthem Coverage
Virginia Medical Plans offers two easy ways to apply for 2015 coverage with Anthem:
1 – Visit the Anthem website and apply online.
2 – Fill out a paper application and fax back to us at 1-888-514-4258.
Although the deadline has been officially extended, we recommend you submit your application as soon as possible to give Anthem plenty of time to process it and send out your ID cards.
Important: Include First Month’s Premium with your Application
It is very important that you include your first month’s premium with your application. You can pay by credit card or electronic funds transfer (EFT).
- If you submit your application with payment by February 15, your coverage will be effective March 1, 2015, and you should receive your ID cards by that date.
- If you submit your application with payment between February 16-28, your coverage will be effective March 1, 2015, but your ID cards may not arrive by that date.
- If you submit your application without payment between February 16-28, your coverage will be effective April 1, 2015.
Again, please don’t wait until the last minute. Act now to avoid any last-minute problems.
