Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia to Become Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia (BCBSGa) has recently announced that they will be changing their name to Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem), effective January 1, 2019. Members will not experience any changes to service models, networks, or account representatives, and Anthem will remain headquartered in Georgia.
While this transition formally goes into effect on January 1, and will include a new website housed at Anthem.com, both current and new members will begin to see the new Anthem name and logo on new ID cards, open enrollment and advertising materials as soon as fall 2018. Anthem has advised that there is no action for employers or members to take.
