A new benefits plan year may mean new insurance cards, which are mailed to members from the provider. To see if you should receive new cards, check the list below and contact the provider directly if you need to check on the status of your cards or request additional ones. Phone numbers for all benefits plan vendors are available on the university's Benefits website.

EHP. New cards will be sent to all EHP participants this year.

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, Kaiser Permanente, BlueChoice. Cards will be sent to new participants and to existing members who made changes.

Express Scripts prescription. Express Scripts cards will be sent to new participants only. All others can continue to use their current card.

Delta Dental Standard and Delta Dental Enhanced with Orthodontia. Cards will be sent to all Delta Dental participants.

United Concordia Dental. Cards will be sent only to existing members who made changes.

EyeMed vision. Cards will be sent to all EyeMed participants.

WageWorks health care FSA reimbursement card. Cards will be sent to new participants and to existing members whose cards have expired. The expiration date (generally a three-year cycle) is indicated on all cards. Note that the card always pulls funds from the current plan year, so starting Jan. 1, the card will pull from 2019 funds. To use funds from your 2018 account before carry-over has occurred, you must pay for the eligible expense out of pocket and then submit a pay-me-back request for reimbursement.
