As a health plan, we are required to mail participants who were eligible for active coverage in 2018 an IRS-prescribed tax form called 1095-B. It is a health insurance tax form which reports the type of coverage you have, dependents covered by your insurance policy, and the period of coverage for the prior year. This form is used to verify on your tax return that you and your dependents have at least minimum qualifying health insurance coverage. Keep this form for your records. No other action is required.
In observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the Plans will be closed on Monday, January 21, 2019. We will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, January 22.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Anthem, our hospital and medical network provider, has been in negotiations to renew their commercial hospital contract with Universal Health Services (UHS), one of the nation's largest hospital management companies. We have been notified that Anthem and UHS did not reach an agreement and hospitals in Riverside and Los Angeles Counties that are a part of the UHS are no longer covered by Anthem effective March 31, 2018.
Recently, Anthem, Inc. reached a settlement in a class action suit relating to the 2015 cyber attack against the company.
