Continuation of Care through Hartford HealthCare Hospital:
Patients in an ongoing treatment program can request approval from Anthem to continue receiving services under their Continuation of Care program. If you think you qualify, call the number on the back of your insurance card or download the forms. You or your provider must mail or fax the completed request for continuation of care to Anthem.
While Hartford Hospital is out of Anthem’s network, Hartford HealthCare will send a bill directly to you for services you receive. You will be responsible for paying this amount.
Alternative Facilities of Care:
Anthem has published a document compiling alternative facilities where you may receive care.
Anthem will be sending letters to members in the mail conveying this information.
