Anthem OTC 2023
Anyone who is a member of an Anthem Medicare Advantage plan with the OTC benefit, will need to access the Anthem OTC 2023 benefit information.
New members of Anthem will receive their ID card and welcome guide 2 weeks after their plan is approved. The prepaid benefit card as well as the OTC catalog should arrive the following week.
Why do I need 2 cards:
- Members will present the Anthem ID card when they visit a providers office for either medical treatment or to use pharmacy benefits.
- You will use the The Nations Benefits Mastercard to access all the extra benefits such as; OTC, Essential Extras, Healthy Groceries, Utility Benefit and Transportation. The extra benefits are all loaded on the Nations Benefits Mastercard.
When you receive the Nations Benefits Mastercard, it is inactive. There is a sticker on the card with activation instructions for the card. You can either call 1-866-413-2582 or go online MyBenefits.NAtionsBenefits.com/Activate to activate your card.
