3. Make An Appointment With Your PMP.
Your main doctor is called a primary medical provider, or PMP. Your PMP is listed on your ID card and in your online account. Call to make an appointment with your PMP within 60 days of becoming a member. Getting a checkup now will help your PMP learn about your medical history before any health issues occur.
4. Learn More About Your Benefits.
We want you to understand your benefits and receive the best possible care. Learn what you get with Anthem on your plan benefits page, including many extras just for being our member! You can also read your member handbook for details about your benefits.
Note: You need to renew your benefits each year.
You'll get a notice in the mail when it's time to renew. If you move, tell your Anthem case manager or visit your local Division of Family Resources office to update your address.
5. Complete Your Health Needs Screening.
