Anthem Blue Cross to Support Members and Communities Impacted by Santa Barbara Fires
Date:5/8/2009

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Anthem Blue Cross announced today that it is making a $10,000 donation to the American Red Cross to bring aid to Californians in the Santa Barbara area who have been impacted by the recent fire that continues to burn and threaten homes.

In addition, Anthem announced today several additional actions it is taking to assist members affected by the fire.

Prescriptions: Anthem Blue Cross members may have left their homes without their prescriptions or they may have been damaged during this disaster. While many prescriptions are refillable on a 30-day cycle, for any prescription ordered from May 6 through May 15, 2009, Anthem is providing a one-time 30-day supply override on affected members' prescriptions. This will enable members to refill their prescriptions now, even if it is not due at this time.

For members in the impacted communities who participate in the Anthem mail order prescription program, Anthem is checking in advance of shipping, that the member will be able to receive his/her mail order. Anthem will re-route orders as needed at no charge to impacted members. Members who cannot get to their homes to receive their mail prescriptions but feel the medication was sent prior to the fires occurring are encouraged to contact their local post office for details of where mail for their area is being deposited at this time.

Member Medical Claims: There may be medical facilities that have been impacted by this disaster. In addition, members may be staying in temporary shelters or with friends and relatives who are located far from their homes.
