Pharmacy We connect
simplicity and
better care.

Health doesn’t happen in silos. Medical and pharmacy coverage shouldn’t either. Powered by our medical and pharmacy data, our programs work together to better identify care gaps and proactively reach out to members and their doctors for improved health outcomes.

When choosing pharmacy benefits, what should you focus on?

Having both medical and pharmacy benefits with Anthem enables us to better identify and close gaps in your employees’ health care – like when they aren’t filling prescriptions or missing lab tests.

Sharon’s Story: medical + pharmacy in action

After multiple ER visits and hospital stays, a case manager is assigned to work with Sharon to help her improve her health. The case manager sees a care gap alert that shows Sharon is late in filling her Hepatitis C medication. Sharon's doctor is also alerted.
The case manager and the doctor help Sharon understand it’s necessary to take her Hepatitis C medication daily and complete all therapy to cure Hepatitis C. Sharon and her case manager create daily medication reminders so that Sharon successfully completes her treatment.
12 weeks later, Sharon sees her tests. She is happy to know she is now free of the Hepatitis C virus.
