Anthem Blue Cross contributes to relief effort
May 25, 2011
ST. LOUIS – To help residents of Joplin/Jasper County recover and rebuild after the recent tornado, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Missouri and its parent company foundation have granted $50,000 to the American Red Cross for disaster relief. The funds will be used by the Red Cross to provide supplies, medical assistance and comfort to Missourians impacted by the May 22 tornado.

In addition, the following assistance and waivers have been enacted:

“Our thoughts and prayers are with our fellow Missourians who lost loved ones, homes and businesses in these deadly storms,” said Dennis Matheis, president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Missouri. “While no amount of financial assistance can ever erase the pain and suffering caused by storms such as these, we are pleased to be able to contribute to relief efforts through our donation to the Red Cross.

“We believe that employees who staff our hotline will provide useful counseling and advice to residents. Our waiver and grace period on premiums and early prescription refill and copay waivers should help our members at this difficult time. We also have streamlined processes to help members who need to replace medical equipment or obtain access to care,” Matheis said.
