Our extensive provider network includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners, psychiatric nurses, marriage and family therapists and professional clinical counselors. For the provision of ABA, we’ve expanded our panel to include Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs). The facility network includes hospital inpatient units, residential treatment centers, partial hospitalization programs, and intensive outpatient services and programs. 
If you are an Anthem Blue Cross member, please call the toll-free Customer Service phone number on the back of your ID card for assistance. Thank you.

Announcements 
Behavioral Health Network Update (Newsletter) is a great way to stay current on Anthem Blue Cross news and information 
Regulatory update: Senate Bill 137. It is extremely important that we have accurate and up-to-date information about your practice in our directories. With the recent passage of Senate Bill 137, which took effect on July 1, 2016, we are committed to ensuring that provider information and directories we provide our members are as accurate and up-to-date as possible. While we look to you to provide us the specific information we need regarding your practice, we are required to conduct semi-annual outreaches to all practices to confirm the information we have on file is accurate. Without verification from you that our provider directory information is accurate, we will be required to remove your practice from the directories we make available to our members. We appreciate your attention to this matter. In addition to your participating in Anthem Blue Cross’ outreach efforts, we ask that you still provide us with updates within 10 days of a change in your practice. 
Using a Practice Profile or Practice Update Form makes updating your practice information easy. Email ProviderDatabaseAnthem@anthem.com any discrepancies you find and include BH CHANGE in your email subject line. For questions about updating your practice, email our Behavioral Health Network Relations team at BHNetworkRelations@anthem.com
