This section shows generic examples of the ID cards you may see. The diagrams point out where to find key coverage details and contact information. Actual cards will be customized based on the member’s policy and, in the case of our Bridge Network, employer group.
Member ID cards may have logos for managing entities or extended networks that affect utilization management, member access to specific networks, and more. A key to these networks and entities appears below the Member ID diagrams.
This first two examples are the ID card templates used for most 2021 EmblemHealth plans and 2022 EmblemHealth plans. These are the most common design you will see.
The third example is the ID card template used for Child Health Plus members. Child Health Plus members access the Prime Network.
City of New York ID Card Templates
The next three images are examples of the ID cards used by City of New York members. City members with a GHI PPO plan are sent two ID cards – one from EmblemHealth and the other from Empire. Both companies use the same member ID number; however, Empire adds the prefix NYC and only uses the first 9 digits of the EmblemHealth ID #, example: NYC K10000000. Please be aware of this when switching between EmblemHealth and Empire systems.
HealthCare Partners: The member is assigned to an HCP primary care physician. The managing entity is responsible for utilization management for assigned members.
Montefiore Medical Center: The member is assigned to a Montefiore primary care physician. The managing entity is responsible for utilization management for assigned members.
SOMOS: The member is assigned to a SOMOS primary care physician. The managing entity is responsible for most utilization management for assigned members. SOMOS members, however, participate in EmblemHealth’s special utilization management programs.
