Anthem Whole Health Connection

Health made whole from Langrand on Vimeo.

With Anthem Whole Health Connection we are transforming the face of health care by connecting our dental, vision, life, disability, pharmacy and medical plans – resulting in better health and a simplified experience. Coordination of care leads to early detection, prevention and management of chronic conditions. While some stand alone carriers might offer additional services, they have no way of knowing who has these medical conditions. At Anthem, we already know who has the conditions and when these members are actively engaged in our care management programs we can help them get the extra support they need. That’s the Anthem Whole Health Connection difference!
