Anthem BCBS Policy Holder FAQs

We have had an increasing number of questions and concerns by our patients regarding the Augusta Health/Anthem BCBS contract negotiations. Along with both parties, and the community, we remain hopeful that mutually agreeable terms will be met. 

Below are the top 3 questions and answers:

1. Can I continue to see my provider at AHCFW offices?

Absolutely! AHCFW has had and will continue to have a contract with Anthem BCBS in 2018. All services provided in our Fishersville or Lexington office will be processed as it has and will be paid as IN NETWORK. It is important to note that AHCFW is privately owned, and therefore not a part of the Augusta Health or AMG negotiations.

2. I have surgery scheduled by my AHCFW physician in 2018, will I have to pay out of network for the hospital charges?

The care provided by your AHCFW surgeon will be covered as IN NETWORK. We urge patients to contact the Augusta Health Anthem Member Assistance Center (AHAMAC) either by phone or in person, so they can assist you and answer your specific questions related to your individual insurance plans, estimates, available financial services, etc. The AHAMAC is located in the Augusta Health Business Office and is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 6 pm. Call 540-245-7565 or email AHAMAC@augustahealth.com.

3. What I am currently pregnant or plan to become pregnant and the contract is not renewed?

The care provided by your AHCFW physician or midwife will be covered as IN NETWORK. We urge patients to contact the Augusta Health Anthem Member Assistance Center (AHAMAC) either by phone or in person, so they can assist you and answer your specific questions related to your individual insurance plans, estimates, available financial services, etc. The AHAMAC is located in the Augusta Health Business Office and is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 6 pm. Call 540-245-7565 or email AHAMAC@augustahealth.com or visit the hospital website at www.augustahealth.com/anthem.
