Your Health Plus Member ID card has all the necessary information needed for worldwide medical and pharmacy benefits for you and your family.
As of January 1, 2006, new Member ID cards were issued with new Member ID numbers. New cards were issued to all Members for the following reasons:
- To provide you and your family with your unique Member ID number
- To safeguard your private information
- To comply with the requirements of HIPAA
Your old Member ID card used your social security number as your Member ID number. Social security numbers will not be used as the Member ID number after January 1, 2006. Please ensure that you use your new Member ID card when you visit your doctor, or other healthcare provider, and notify your doctor of your new Member ID number.
If you use your old Member ID card after January 1, 2006, your claims for medical and pharmacy benefits may be delayed or denied.
