Anthem has accelerated more than $600 million in payments to support hospitals, medical groups and doctors who are on the frontlines providing COVID-19 treatment and supplementing critical services in communities across the state.
This effort is part of the carrier's ongoing commitment to the whole health of the communities and the providers who care for them. Anthem is collaborating with safety-net providers who provide important services for some of California’s most vulnerable populations. Some of those actions include:
- Directing more than $4 million in advance incentive payments to 54 federally qualified health centers to increase quality and telehealth capabilities for some of California's most underserved populations
- Distributing 435 telehealth and digital solutions kiosks for safety-net health centers to use with their entire patient population
- Collaborating with safety-net health centers to mail 1,000 telehealth kits to high-risk members
