Anthem Essential Extras
Living your healthiest life is about more than just doctor visits. At Anthem, we promote safe and healthy living with additional benefits not included with Original Medicare. These no-cost benefits take a whole-health approach to supporting your physical, social and emotional wellbeing.
Many of our Medicare Advantage plans offer dental, vision, hearing, transportation, over-the-counter benefits, and more.
Some of our Medicare Advantage plans also include additional options that may allow you to choose one or sometimes two of our Essential Extras benefits. Here are just a few of the no-cost benefits you can choose from:
A quarterly allowance toward the payment of utilities like gas, electric, internet and cellular bills.
Everyday Options Allowance for Dental, Vision, and Hearing
Receive an annual allowance for dental, vision, and hearing care above your existing plan benefit.
Purchase groceries with a monthly allowance that supports healthy living.
An annual allowance for assistive and safety devices, such as handrails, shower stools, reaching devices and more.
Receive rides to health-related appointments and visits to the pharmacy.
These are just a few of the no-cost benefits you can choose from. Learn more about Anthem Essential Extras in our detailed article.
