Health Plan ID Cards

Once you have submitted your health plan coverage elections, it takes 4-6 weeks to receive your Health Plan ID cards. You need the cards to make medical appointments, get prescriptions, sign up for EHP wellness programs, or create an account on the Healthy Choice premium discount portal.

Accessing Service Prior to Receiving Health Plan ID Card

If you need services during this time frame and prior to your benefit elections being processed, you may be asked to pay up-front for services. This can be adjusted at a later date when the Third Party Administrator (TPA) processes your benefits selections. If you need an appointment urgently and have selected your benefits but do not have your EHP ID card yet, you may ask the scheduler to select “EHP Pend” as your payer when scheduling the appointment. Your provider office can also call EHP to confirm coverage.  Please note, if you are an Out-of-Area caregiver and need services prior to receiving your health plan ID card, you will have to pay upfront for services and then complete a reimbursement form.

If you have to pay out of pocket for prescriptions prior to being activated with Caremark, you can complete a form and file for a reimbursement. Remember, stay with a Tier 1 pharmacy provider to maximize your prescription drug benefit.
