Due to the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), Anthem made changes to their portfolio of plan offerings. For members effective 1/1/2020 or later, Plan F that was offered through Anthem Insurance Companies, Inc. (AICI) legal entity, will not be available. This change is reflected on the current Outline of Coverage, included with the sales kits in the market to support 2020 products and rates as of September 2019, and will be available through the Online Store and mProducer on January 24, 2020.
Importantly, Plan F and Select Plan F are still available for eligible enrollees through Community Insurance Companies, Inc. (CIC) dba Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. This change does not impact those currently enrolled in either plan. Any applications for Plan F/Select F and 1/1/2020 effective dates using the OLD 2019 application will need to be re-submitted using the new application that supports the 2020 portfolio through Community Insurance Companies, Inc., or select a coverage effective date of 12/31/2019 if allowed under the applicants enrollment period.
