Anthem Blue Cross has advised that effective December 8, 2017, its ProviderAccess portal will be discontinued, with all provider tools and information transitioning exclusively to the Availity web portal at www.availity.com.
The California Medical Association had previously reported in March 2014 that Anthem was moving patient eligibility, benefits and claim status inquiry functions from its ProviderAccess portal to the Availity web portal. However, a number of resources, including Anthem Blue Cross Provider Manuals and Policies and Procedures, remained accessible through the ProviderAccess portal.
For more information on registering for the Availity web portal, visit www.availity.com/providers/registration-details.
