If your Health Benefits ID card falls into the wrong hands, someone could use it to see a doctor, get prescription drugs or file a false claim with the Benefit Funds. This can put your care and even your credit report at risk. Here are a few tips to protect yourself:
- Carry your card in a safe place in your wallet.
- Don’t share your ID number with anyone other than your healthcare providers or the Benefit Funds.
- If your card is lost or stolen, contact the Benefit Funds immediately through My Account and we will issue you a new one right away.
Check Your EOB!
