The new benefits plan year will mean new insurance cards for most JHU employees. To see if you should be receiving new membership cards, check this list:
CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield Core PPO Plan
CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield Enhanced PPO Plan
CareFirst BCBS High-Deductible Health Plan
LIUNA BU CareFirst Network Only Plan
You will receive one medical ID card with information about both your medical and pharmacy benefits, including contact information for Quantum Health and Capital Rx. Effective Jan. 1, 2024, destroy any old identification cards you may have and present your new card to providers, hospitals, labs, and pharmacies on your first visit of the new year.
Kaiser Permanente HMO
Cards will be sent only to new LiUNA bargaining unit participants and existing members who made changes.
Delta Dental Core and Delta Dental Enhanced With Orthodontia
Cards will be sent to new core or enhanced plan participants. ID cards are not needed to receive services. See this Delta Dental flyer for details.
Cards will be sent only to new EyeMed participants. ID cards are not needed to receive services; members can instead provide their name and date of birth to the provider. Members also can download the EyeMed app, which holds a copy of the ID card.
WEX health care FSA reimbursement card
Cards will be sent to those who newly elected a health care or limited purpose flexible spending account for 2024, and to existing members whose cards have expired (The expiration date, generally a four-year-cycle, is indicated on the card.) Note that the card always pulls funds from the current plan year, so beginning Jan. 1, the card will pull from 2024 funds; to use funds from your 2023 account before carryover has occurred, you must pay for the eligible expense out-of-pocket and request reimbursement.
WEX health savings account reimbursement card
A WEX debit card will be sent to new participants, making it easy to access health savings account funds to pay for qualifying medical, dental, and vision expenses.
Note: Insurance cards are mailed to members by the provider. To check on the status of your cards, or to request additional cards, contact the provider directly. Membership cards also can be uploaded from most provider websites; contact information for all benefits plan vendors is available on the Benefits & Worklife website.
