Understanding the EOB

What is an EOB?

An Explanation of Benefits, or an "EOB" as it is more commonly known as, is a statement that is sent to you by Anthem explaining the breakdown of your benefits in specific dollars for each doctor visit or medical service you obtain.

The EOB will show how much of your Annual Deductible has been met, how much you owe, and how much the allowed amount of charges is based on the discounts offered to you for being in the Anthem Network.
