Anthem OTC catalog
This post will give you the information you need to access the Anthem OTC catalog. That way you can use your OTC benefit. Beneficiaries can use the benefit to purchase certain non-prescription, over-the-counter items such as; vitamins, pain relievers, first aid supplies, and orthopedic support braces, as well as other items to help with minor health concerns. You can use the benefit one time each quarter. Any benefit that you do not use during the quarter, will not rollover to the next quarter. If you do not use the entire OTC benefit amount for the year it will not roll over to the next calendar year.
If you are a member of a participating Anthem Medicare Advantage plan:
You will receive an OTC card. This card is called Healthy Benefits Plus. This card is used for select over-the-counter item purchases.
Beginning in January 2019, beneficiaries can use this benefit to purchase OTC supplies in Walmart stores and in a few states, such as California, New York and new Jersey you can shop in CVS stores.
There are a few ways to order over the counter items.
1. In-Store – to use your OTC card in store, simply purchase eligible items and use the card as your form of payment
2. Order items online either at Walmart.com or in the App. You must first download the app to use it. If you want to place an order online at Walmart.com, once you create an account you can sign in and place items in you cart and then check out using your OTC card number as a gift card for payment.
3. You can call 866-413-2582 to place an order by phone.
By giving beneficiaries more access to OTC products, Anthem can help address more healthcare needs of members and reduce their out-of-pocket expenses.
