Anthem Blue Cross & Stanford Health Care Reach New Contract Agreement

October 20, 2022

Anthem Blue Cross (Anthem) is pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement on a new contract with Stanford Health Care (Stanford).

Effective immediately, Stanford facilities and affiliated providers will rejoin Anthem’s network of participating care providers, providing Anthem Blue Cross members with in-network access to Stanford hospitals and its affiliated physician groups. The agreement is retroactive to September 1, 2022, which means any Anthem member with an employer-sponsored plan who received services from Stanford facilities and affiliated providers on or after September 1, 2022 will receive coverage for these services at the in-network level of benefits.

A full list of all Stanford locations is available at

Anthem is pleased to continue working with Stanford to improve the healthcare system for consumers and employers in California. Our new agreement protects affordability for Anthem members, while strengthening our ability to provide high-quality care and a broad network of providers.

Anthem members who have questions should call the toll-free number on the back of their current Anthem member identification card.
