Flex Card Benefits With Anthem

What Is A Flex Card?


A flex card such as the Anthem Benefits Prepaid Card gives you convenient access to benefits your Anthem Medicare Advantage plan provides. It works just like a prepaid credit or debit card and can have multiple options for use, including online purchases. Use it for those expenses you are eligible to receive an allowance for such as groceries, over-the-counter health items, and utilities. We make it all easy by pre-loading the card with your spending amounts so it’s ready for use.
