Either way, your Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois member ID card packs a wallop. What else holds everything you need to take care of your health?

Your member ID card contains information your doctor, clinic or hospital needs. It shows the dates of your health coverage. And it includes the phone numbers your health care provider can use to call and verify your coverage. That should be what you need to make your appointment.
Once you are at the doctor’s office, you may need your member ID card to check in for your visit. The staff may make a copy of it for their files.
If your card gets lost or you haven’t received it yet, you can print a temporary card.
First, log in to Blue Access for MembersSM (BAMSM) online. If you don’t already have a BAM account, it’s easy to register. The site will walk you through the necessary steps. You’ll need your group and member numbers to register.
Once you’re logged in, you’ll see the basics for using your health care on the welcome screen. On the left, you’ll see a small picture of an ID card. Clicking on the picture will open a temporary ID card document you can print.
You use your mobile phone for everything. It’s your connection to your friends. It’s your alarm clock. Maybe you even use it to pay for your coffee.
So why not use it to keep track of your health plan information? You can have your health insurance ID card handy and have quick access to other health plan information using your phone.
Use the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois mobile app to stay on top of those details. The app is full of useful features that allow you to:
The app is free and available in English and Spanish. Download the BCBSIL App from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
