Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) is committed to supporting you in providing quality care and services to the members in our network. The provider manual is your key source for member benefits, program requirements and other administrative guidelines. Our Utilization Management (UM) Guidelines, Medical Policies and Clinical Practice Guidelines offer additional guidance for providing care to our members.
Our provider manual is designed for contracted Anthem providers, hospitals and ancillary providers. Our goal is to create a useful reference guide for you and your office staff.
