First, if you chose electronic delivery of materials when you completed your application, we’ll send you a welcome email with a personalized video that reviews your plan in detail. This is a great opportunity to take note of your plan name and key financial details like premium payments, copay amounts, your deductible and your out-of-pocket maximum. If you chose delivery of materials by mail, a letter covering the same subjects is on its way.
Next, you will get your member ID card. It’s good to have it with you at all times, especially when you see a doctor or fill a prescription. Key information on the member ID card includes your policy number, your member ID number, and customer service and pharmacy benefits phone numbers. If you have a PPO plan and are covering dependents, all of the member ID cards for your family will have your name on them.
Shortly after you get your member ID card, you’ll receive your benefit book. If you chose electronic delivery of materials when you completed your application, you will get an email notice that your benefit book is available to view in Blue Access for MembersSM. If you did not choose electronic delivery, it will come in the mail in a 9- by 13-inch envelope. Be sure to review and save this book. It contains detailed information about your benefits, several summary documents for easy reference and forms you may need.
We offer several convenient ways you can get important information about your benefits and how to use them. You can use these online resources any time to get the information you need.
