Managing your healthcare alone can be hard, especially if you are dealing with many health problems at the same time. If you need extra support to get and stay healthy, we can help. As a member of Anthem, you may have a care manager on your healthcare team. A care manager is a specially trained health professional who works with you and your doctors to make sure you get the right care when and where you need it.
