BCBSTX Member ID Cards Issued with Incorrect Coverage Date

December 6, 2013

We want to make you aware that some ID cards for members of group plans issued after Nov. 16, 2013, with a 2013 or earlier effective date, display an incorrect coverage date of 1/1/14. This is only an error on the ID card and does not affect the member's coverage or claims processing. All other information on the ID card is accurate, and should be used to check a member's benefits.

Please be sure to follow the normal process of checking the member's eligibility and benefits through your preferred online vendor or by calling the number on the back of the member's ID card.
