 I have Anthem as well.  I was just approved last week.  I had my paperwork submitted at the end of March, so it took a month.  I understand completely the anxiety in waiting.  Hope you hear from them a lot sooner than I did.

I have Keystone thru BC BS in PA and they don't have a way to track on line.  My papers were submitted on a Thursday, I called them the following Wednesday and they told me it was approved.  Ten minutes later my dr office called and told me it was approved and gave me a tentative surgery date.  Call them, can't hurt

I have Anthem , Ct and the dr's office called to say I was approved after a few weeks and then 5 days before surgery I opened a letter that said I wasn't approved , the next letter in my mailbox the same day said it was revised and I was approved. So I had about 45 seconds of sheer PANIC!!!!!

 With me it was 3 days, with my son it was 5 days, and with my husband it was 4 days.  I called everyday on all of these.
