A New Third-Party Administrator for Your Benefit
New Health Insurance ID Cards from Wellmark were recently mailed and will begin arriving soon at your home address. Unfortunately, the plan name in which you enrolled is showing incorrectly. Corrected cards are being printed and will be delivered in early July. Your ID number printed on the card is correct so your benefits will be processed at the plan level you chose during Open Enrollment, and you can use this card to receive benefits at your providers and pharmacy.
As a reminder: Your new Health Plan ID Card will only list the name of the state employee. Names of covered spouses and dependents will not appear on the card. If you have any questions, please contact the Wellmark Team at 1.800.846.9183.
