The Information We Collect

A file stored in your computer's browser, called a "cookie," allows our web server to read your customized preferences. When you visit our site, we may place a cookie on your computer that will allow us to enhance your experience at emblemhealth.com, and to make improvements to our site. Our cookies will never be used to track your activity on any third party websites that you link to from emblemhealth.com or to send "spam." The cookie does not provide us with any personally identifiable information about you, and is deleted when your Internet session ends.

If you wish to opt-out of this information collection, you may turn off the option for your web browser to accept cookies.

Use of the Information This Site Gathers and Tracks

We will not use any personally identifiable information you give us except to provide the product, service or information that you request or for which you register. We will not sell, rent, license or otherwise share your personally identifiable information, including your email address, with third parties unless you specifically consent to let us do so. We may use the non-personally identifiable information we gather in aggregate form to improve our site, and we may share that information with our affiliated companies or our health and wellness sponsors. Personal information you voluntarily provide and the non-personally identifiable information we collect in aggregate form will not affect your insurance coverage, eligibility, premiums or claims payment.

We may use personally identifiable information, including your email address or telephone number to send you information that you have asked to receive. To opt out of receiving future electronic mailings or messages, visit emblemhealth.com, sign in using your user ID and password and change your communication preferences. Each message we send will include these instructions so you may opt out at any time. We may partner with third parties to send electronic mailings and messages. However, we will not knowingly grant access to or distribute personally identifiable information to any third parties.

The Entity That Maintains Personally Identifiable Information

Unless specifically noted, all personally identifiable information presented on this site is retained by us. The information that is collected via our Health Assessment (HA) is maintained by our HA partner, RedBrick.

Personal Identifiable Claims Information Retention

Member claims information is retained on the secure section of our website for 18 months after a member has terminated their coverage with us. After 18 months, that member's claim information will no longer be accessible through our website. A record of the member's termination date and eligibility status will be permanently available online for reference.

Making Changes to the Information You Provide Us

At any time, you can change, update or remove from our system any information you have voluntarily provided.

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure.

We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our website.
