Anthem BCBS acquires Beacon Health Options

As of March 01/2020- Anthem BCBS finalized its acquisition of an independent behavioral health organization, Beacon Health Options.

Beacon Health Options serves over 36 million people across the country.

Things to consider:

  1. Members- can still use the phone number on the back of the cards and their health plan’s website to access self-services.
  2. Providers- continue using the provider service contact information on the back of the member’s card or online self-service portals or websites

According to the announcement the Beacon Health and Anthem provider networks, contracts and fees will remain separate at this time.
