IPEP/ ANTHEM FORMS
Anthem requires an employer application, employee applications, and a census in order to provide a quote. One of the most important things to remember is all forms must be completely filled out. The highlighted areas of both applications must be done. The census must also be completed…please do not print this…the census will print on 152 pages one line each! The columns in red must be done. As always, IPEP members will be represented by their local independent insurance agent. Once the applications and census have been completely filled out and received by IPEP the information is sent to Anthem. You will receive your quote within 7-10 business days.
