Things You Can Do Now

There’s no need to wait to start working on your health care plan.

Track Your Application

Keep an eye on your application to make sure your health care coverage starts on time.  Log in to Application Tracker.

Make Your First Premium Payment

Don't forget, your application is not complete until you make your first payment. If you haven’t already, go ahead and make your first premium payment.

Use Provider Finder®

You can check to see if your doctor is in-network or select a primary care provider (PCP) if you have an HMO health care plan.  Find my doctors on Provider Finder®.


Look for Membership Materials

We usually need 48 hours to process your application. Then, you should start receiving your Welcome Letter or Email and other materials like:

Member ID Card

You'll receive your member ID card once your payment is received and your application is processed.

It has details like your policy number and our Customer Service phone number.

If you have a PPO health plan, you and any covered dependents will get member ID cards in your name only. If you have an HMO plan, any covered dependents will get an ID card with their name and yours.

Member Welcome Kit

If you applied for a 2020 health plan, you should get your Member Welcome Kit within 7-10 business days after your first payment is received.

You'll get the specifics you need for your 2020 health care coverage, such as your Plan Benefit Book. Your Book has materials that show what’s covered with your plan. 

Also, you’ll find helpful information and forms including:

  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Auto Bill Pay
  • Protected Health Information (PHI) Authorization Form

If you'd like to see more details now, please review your Member Guide.

Get Set Up Online

In addition to using Provider Finder®  you can:
