The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that healthcare workers and residents of nursing homes and long-term care facilities be the first to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Each state will make decisions about vaccine distribution based on their own circumstances.
Anthem members will have no cost share for a COVID-19 vaccine
When the COVID-19 vaccine is FDA-authorized and publicly available, all Anthem members will be able to receive the vaccine at no cost from in-network or out-of-network healthcare professionals. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) requires that fully insured and administrative services only (self-funded) groups cover the vaccine with no cost sharing.
COVID-19 vaccines may not be widely available until mid-2021. To find the latest COVID-19 information, visit the CDC website.
