We’re Changing Our Name...

November 15, 2018

In 2019, we’ll carry on this legacy ─ as Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

But not our commitment to your health

We’re Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia (BCBSGa), which includes Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia, Inc. and Blue Cross Blue Shield Healthcare Plan of Georgia, Inc. In 2019, we’re merging these companies to create business efficiencies and administrative cost savings. Blue Cross Blue Shield Healthcare Plan of Georgia, Inc. will be the surviving company.

In doing so, you’ll know us under our new trade name, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem). Our affiliates will be joining us, too. Greater Georgia Life is moving to Anthem Life.

That’s pretty much all that will be different ─ almost everything else will stay the same. You can still use the same doctors and hospitals. You’ll still get high-quality, affordable health benefits. And we’ll continue to offer the same programs and services to help you take care of your health.

No need for you to do anything

We just wanted you to know about the change so you’ll recognize the Anthem name when you see it everywhere starting next January. You might have seen it in your open enrollment materials. You'll also see the new name on your ID card when we send it to you in 2019. In the meantime, just keep using your current ID card until your new Anthem card arrives.

Looking ahead

Starting January 1, 2019, you’ll find us on the web at anthem.com. Your login information will stay the same. If you use the BCBS Georgia Anywhere app, you’ll need to download and use the Anthem Anywhere app after January 1, 2019.

Over 80 years of dedicated service to our Georgia members
