COVID-19 vaccines will be covered at no cost to Anthem members

Anthem has announced that all Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce members using Anthem’s chamber healthcare products will be able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at no cost.

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.

  • Individual and group health plans: Members will have no cost share when they receive a vaccine from in- and out-of-network healthcare professionals through the national public health emergency period.
  • Medicare health plans: Members will have no cost share for vaccines at both in- and out-of-network providers through December 31, 2021.

COVID-19 vaccines may not be widely available until mid-2021. To find the latest COVID-19 information, visit the CDC website.
