What Is an ANOC?

ANOC is an acronym for Annual Notice of Change, a document that healthcare providers are required by US regulations to provide to their members detailing changes to coverage effective on January 1 of the upcoming year. The aim of the ANOC is to provide healthcare subscribers with accurate, updated information and adequate time to assess their healthcare options.

Under current US regulations, healthcare providers in the US are required to clearly outline any changes in coverage, costs or service area in the ANOC document, which must meet exacting specifications and be delivered to members in September.

US healthcare communications are highly regulated, so data collection, formatting and delivery requirements are subject to change. Healthcare providers are expected to be aware of these changes and meet all current, relevant ANOC compliance requirements
