Anthem Revises Rate Filing for 2018 Individual Plan Offerings in KY

Anthem recently announced that it will reduce its 2018 individual plan offerings in Kentucky and will only offer plans in 59 counties:

This decision does not affect those who have employer-based insurance, Medicaid, Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage health plans, or individuals enrolled in “grandfathered” plans (plans purchased before March 2010) or “grandmothered” plans (plans purchased before October 2013).

Individual members will soon receive an email sharing this news.

Anthem stand-alone plan offerings for dental, vision, and life benefits will not change, and will be available to current members and new customers in 2018.

Anthem Adds Plan G as Guaranteed Issue Plan

Anthem has announced that they will now include Loss of Group Coverage as a Guarantee Issue (GI) right situation to enroll into Plan G! This applies to those who have a GI right because they lost group coverage either primary or secondary to Medicare, and will apply whether the loss was voluntary or involuntary (based on state regulations).

The decision to allow enrollment into Plan G for these individuals will be effective with all Medicare Supplement applications received on 9/1/17 or later for all of our Anthem Blue states.
