Anthem Offers 3 Ways to Save Money on Healthcare Costs
Anthem offers several programs that could save members money on their healthcare costs. There are three ways Anthem helps members save money as they search for high-quality healthcare at the most reasonable cost.
- SmartShopper - Anthem is partnering with VitalsSmartShopper to provide theseadditional benefits to its group employees. Members can either call or go online to figure out the best price for high-quality medical services. The service is free, and if you choose a recommended provider, you not only save money - you can also earn a cash reward. The important thing to remember is that you are getting the same high-quality service despite the lower price tag! Click here for more information.
- AIM Specialty Health - This program is offered directly through Anthem via an "800" phone number. It is similar to SmartShopper in that it helps you compare prices for high-quality services. The program is free. You save money but there is no reward. Some of the services overlap those offered through SmartShopper but most go above and beyond routine "tests."

- Cost Compare - This program is offered directly through Anthem via your Employee Portal. It allows you to compare and/or estimate your costs for the same procedures, including surgeries, at various hospitals. Click here for more information.
