The health and safety of our associates, members and communities is a top priority for Anthem.  This priority has become increasingly important as we continue to face the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Anthem believes vaccination is the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect our members, our communities, our families and ourselves. To minimize the risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus and maintain a safe and healthy workplace, vaccination is required for this role. (At Anthem, fully vaccinated means it has been at least two weeks since you have received the second dose of a two-dose vaccine such as Moderna or Pfizer, or the single dose of a single dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson).


If you do not meet the requirements for this position, we encourage you to review other positions that currently allow virtual work.  If you have a medical or sincerely held religious reason for not being vaccinated, consistent with applicable law, Anthem will consider requests for reasonable accommodation on this basis.  Should you have any questions regarding the requirement after applying, email
