Planning to visit the doctor or fill a prescription at a new pharmacy soon? You’ll want to have your Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) member ID card handy. If you’ve misplaced or lost yours, you can print a temporary card or request a new one in Blue Access for MembersSM (BAMSM). Here’s a quick look at how:
Print a temporary member ID card If you need a member ID card today for an appointment or pharmacy visit, you can print a temporary one from multiple areas within BAM.
From there, click the "Print Temporary ID Card" button. Remember, your computer must be connected to a printer.
Request an ID card You can also order an additional permanent member ID card or a replacement for a lost card in BAM.
If you have questions about getting a new member ID care or about benefits, claims or other information related to your Blue Access for Members account, call customer service at the number listed on your member ID card.
For easy access to BAM and your virtual ID card, download the BCBSIL Mobile App to view on your mobile device. The BCBSIL App is available for iPhone and Android users. To get the BCBSIL App, text* BCBSILAPP to 33633 or search for BCBSIL in the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
