INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- WellPoint (NYSE: WLP) today announced revised medical and pharmacy guidelines to help members who are directly impacted by Hurricane Ike. In addition, a 24-hour nurse helpline -- 1-866-417-7107 -- has been established to assist members.

The revised guidelines will help members who are impacted by Hurricane Ike access needed medical care and prescription drugs.

Members affected by the hurricane should seek medical assistance wherever it is available and have their medications refilled at any pharmacy or shipped to them at an alternative address.

These revisions apply to affected members living in Texas and Louisiana who are under a mandatory evacuation and who are covered by UniCare, WellPoint NextRx and WellPoint affiliated health plans in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, Nevada, Ohio, Wisconsin and Virginia.
