Physicians Question Anthem ER Policy

Dec 8, 2017

Indiana emergency physicians are concerned a new insurance policy to curb emergency department visits could scare away patients. The Anthem policy, already in place in three other states, will take effect in Indiana next month.

Four Indiana counties that were in danger of having no insurance options for customers on the Affordable Care Act marketplace will have choices in 2018. Decatur, Jackson, Grant and Wayne Counties were at risk of having no providers next year after Anthem and MD Wise announced in June they would be leaving the market at the end of this year.

It would be the largest-ever settlement in a data breach case if approved. That’s according to attorneys for the victims in the case.
