Where Can I Find My Group Number On My Insurance Card?

Your insurance card holds valuable information that can assist when seeking health care services. It provides details about your plan, group number and more – this data also enables healthcare providers to determine which benefits are applicable to you.

Group number

Your Blue Cross ID card provides healthcare providers with important information when they provide medical treatment to you, such as your member identification number (Member ID) and group number, which identify both your employer’s insurance policy and health plan respectively. Furthermore, this card displays your coverage amount which represents what percentage of costs Blue Cross will cover per service rendered.

The back or bottom of your card should provide contact details, such as an address, phone number and website. Your primary care provider (PCP) if required by your health plan as well as family members who are covered will also be listed here. Your card should display copay amounts, deductible amounts and out-of-pocket maximum amounts; additionally this date of insurance coverage commencement/effective date may also be displayed; please note: Original Medicare does not feature group numbers due to being an individual policy.

Policy number

If you have health insurance, it’s essential that you always bring your card with you when visiting a physician’s office or pharmacy. Healthcare providers need this information in order to bill for medical services using your plan – including your name, member ID number and group number as well as an effective date that informs healthcare providers when coverage begins.

Your policy number is an exclusive code that identifies your insurance policy, commonly referred to as its ID by insurers. This number helps them track claims and costs. The insurer typically places it near your name or that of your employer on your card’s front side, though sometimes its location can differ.

Check your insurance card for an Rx symbol to indicate whether or not it covers prescriptions; this is especially beneficial if you take several different medications. Also review any out-of-pocket costs such as copays or deductibles which vary based on plan type; for instance, some plans offer fixed monthly copay rates while others use percentage-based payments systems.

Enrollee name

Every insurance plan differs, yet most provide key information that must be presented to health care providers when you present your card to them. Most often, health care providers require seeing both member ID number and enrollee name to verify coverage – especially true if individuals obtain health coverage through their employers.

Physical insurance cards display your enrollee name and policy number at the top of each front page, along with your primary care physician (PCP) name if your plan requires one. They also contain group numbers and employer group codes which help determine costs as well as copays applicable.

Most insurance cards will also list an effective date. This date marks when your coverage began and can help your provider quickly locate services within their network. Certain plans also display special symbols to show what type of plan they are; PPO suitcase icons indicate those which offer maximum network options for services.

On the back of your card will be contact numbers and links to resources, as well as direct numbers to reach out directly to the insurance provider with questions or help regarding your account or claims processing. It’s also wise to review your card as soon as it arrives to avoid any mistakes that might delay claims processing and potentially increase costs.

Insurance company members should keep their cards with them when visiting a doctor or filling a prescription, to quickly access medical records if an emergency arises. An electronic version can even be saved on your phone for quick and convenient access to coverage.

Always carry a copy of your insurance card in your wallet or purse to show to healthcare providers when needed. Otherwise, they may request payment up front before filing with their insurer later.

Employer name
