Anthem Medicare Advantage offers a variety of additional benefits. While not every one of these benefits is available in every region, you can expect the following from one of their plans.
Telehealth is always a great option if you don’t have time to travel to your local doctor. Anthem’s telehealth services are 24/7 access to telehealth services when using a smartphone, computer, or tablet.
Personal Emergency Response
Anthem’s personal emergency response is designed for when you’re home alone and need medical assistance. Using a button on a neck pendant or wristband, you’ll reach a representative who will determine your required help. If you have a more complex condition or need additional assistance, you may be assigned a designated caregiver, clinician, or local emergency services.
