Help is Available for Members Affected by Natural Disasters

Recovering from a natural disaster is never easy. We're here to help our members who have been impacted by events such as tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and severe weather.

If you've been affected by a natural disaster, we can help you:

  • Find a doctor or hospital
  • Refill a prescription if you have Prime Therapeutics
  • Coordinate or transition your care
  • Get a member ID card

If you do not have your BCBSIL member ID card on hand, you can either:

  • Print a temporary card on Blue Access for MembersSM (BAMSM), or
  • Call the Customer Service number for your plan. Provide either your Social Security number or your name and date of birth so that our customer advocates can help you.
