We are excited to begin serving Medicaid enrollees in Ohio. Anthem looks forward to bringing the power of Blue to Ohio families.
Paramount Advantage will become Anthem
Current Paramount Advantage members will automatically become Anthem members later this year. You do not need to do anything to keep the Medicaid benefits you have now. We are here to help you through the change and answer any questions you have. For more information, call Member Services at 844-912-0938 (TTY 711) Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern time.
We are trusted as the top health insurance plan by commercial and Medicare members in Ohio. We have been helping families get health insurance for more than 80 years. With Anthem, you will receive the benefits of a national brand powered by a local team with a network that includes some of the best doctors and hospitals in the area.
