Health question at midnight?

Anthem’s 24/7 NurseLine is always ready to help

Health concerns can happen when you least expect them. You might be on vacation or even on a business trip. Or maybe it’s 3 a.m. and your child has a fever. Now there’s somewhere you can turn for help any time of the day or night – and it’s at no cost to you if you’re covered on a Purdue medical plan.

Call the Anthem 24/7 NurseLine at 888-279-5449 to talk with a registered nurse about your health concern. Whether it’s a question about allergies, fever, types of preventive care or any other topic, nurses are always there to provide support and peace of mind. And, if you want, a nurse will call you later to see how you’re doing.

Anthem’s nurses can help you choose the right place for care if your doctor isn’t available and you aren’t sure what to do. Do you need to head straight to the emergency room? Is urgent care best? Or do you need to see your doctor? Making the right choice can save you time and money – and give you access to the best possible care.

Do you prefer to speak Spanish or another language other than English? The 24/7 NurseLine has Spanish-speaking nurses and translators of various languages on call. TTY/TDD services are available, too.

If you’d prefer not to talk about your health concern over the phone, the AudioHealth Library might be for you. These helpful prerecorded messages cover more than 300 health topics in English and Spanish. Just call the 24/7 NurseLine and choose the AudioHealth Library option.

Remember to call toll free at 888-279-5449 to speak with a nurse, or just check the back of your medical plan ID card for the 24/7 NurseLine phone number.
