Anthem Insurance Update

 

Effective November 1, 2017 Mid-Atlantic Women’s Care will no longer be in-network providers with Anthem.


We will happily continue to take care of your health care needs as an out-of-network provider. However this will mean that Anthem’s policies may penalize you with higher co-insurance and co-pays.


Should you have any questions about your out-of-network benefits please contact your Anthem customer service representative number listed on your health insurance card.
