Updating our May article about The TeleDentists expanding their coverage via Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS), our initial information was that Anthem was offering teledentistry in only nine states. The current total since May is actually 14 states and covers by state and plan:
- CA – Anthem Blue Cross
- CO, CT, GA, IN, KY, ME, MO, NH, NV, OH, VA, WI – Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield
- NY – Empire BlueCross BlueShield
Part of this Editor’s puzzlement is that each health plan issues releases for its plan by state, and when our original article was written, only nine states had issued releases. This is in addition to their agreement with Cigna in employer-sponsored plans announced in April [TTA 15 April]. Hat tip to FischTank PR’s Kate Caruso-Sharpe for the update on behalf of Anthem.
