The global coronavirus pandemic has created an unprecedented situation which affects us all. CaliforniaChoice, on behalf of Anthem Blue Cross, wants to help and support our customers during this challenging time which is why Anthem Blue Cross has elected to forgive a percentage of your group’s Anthem April 2020 premium.

CaliforniaChoice has applied a one-time 15 percent credit for all members enrolled on Anthem during the month of April to your existing group’s September 2020 invoice. The credit is part of Anthem’s COVID-19 related premium forgiveness program, calculated based on a percentage of your group’s Anthem April premium which will be reflected on the group’s September invoice with a change code of “CO” indicating a correction in premium for this one-time credit. New business groups effective 9/01/2020 or later do not qualify.

The premium credit of 15 percent will not affect your broker commission.

Anthem Blue Cross has also included terminated groups that have paid their Anthem April premium in their COVID-19 premium forgiveness program. A check reflecting the one-time 15 percent Anthem credit will be sent directly to the group.

On behalf of CalChoice and Anthem Blue Cross, we hope the premium credit will provide some financial relief, contribute to your group’s financial wellness, and demonstrate how highly valued your group’s business is.
