Beginning January 1, 2024, Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield will become Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem), and Empire Blue Cross will become Anthem Blue Cross (Anthem).
There is no action for our care providers. There will be no changes to your agreements or contract, reimbursement, or level of support — now or in the future — because of our new name. For members, this evolution to Anthem will not cause any reduction to coverage or access to care. We look forward to continuing to provide our members with the strong medical coverage and healthcare assistance they expect and deserve.
