Stop a Stroke in its Tracks
If you’re not sure whether someone is having a stroke, think F.A.S.T.
F – Face: Ask the person to smile. Does one side of their face droop?
A – Arms: Ask them to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
S – Speech: Ask them to repeat a simple phrase. Does their speech sound slurred?
T – Time: If you see any of the signs, even if they start to go away, call 9-1-1 for an ambulance. Paramedics can start lifesaving treatment on the way to the emergency room.
People who arrive at the hospital within three hours of their first symptom are more likely to make a full recovery. That’s why it’s so important to get emergency care at the first sign of a stroke. A stroke can be treated with drugs or surgery.

*While Anthem makes every effort to ensure that the lists of doctors and hospitals are up to date and accurate, providers do leave the network from time to time, and the listings need to be changed. Updating the provider lists are done as quickly as possible but there can be a time when a provider shows up that should no longer be listed. If there are any questions about a provider being in the Anthem network, calling the provider directly and having their office confirm the current most up to date status would be the most effective course of action.
