It has come to our attention that all agents appointed with Anthem through Cornerstone Senior Marketing most likely received an email communication directly from Anthem.
The email would have resembled the following message:
Here’s information to help you get started.

This email was sent to you due to a technical issue that had occurred at Anthem.
Anthem stated the following around the issue:
“This issue occurred due to an internal Anthem system migration which placed a term date on your downline agency’s appointments in error. Due to the agency’s appointment being termed, this in turn termed all of your downline agents.”
Once Cornerstone Senior Marketing was made aware of the situation, we quickly had Anthem correct the issue, which prompted the above email.
The good news – NO ACTION IS REQUIRED ON YOUR PART. However, some of you may have also experienced issues using your mProducer tool. Please note that should resolve itself within 24 hours of receiving the communication from Anthem.
Cornerstone Senior Marketing is advising our agents to please monitor their commission statements as a result of this situation and it’s resolution. If you see any issues that need reporting, please let our team know. We appreciate your understanding with this and apologize for any inconvenience.
Thank you for your partnership.
