Are you using the appropriate benefit ID cards at your office visits or dental appointments? The appropriate benefit plan ID cards should be presented at office visits, urgent care visits, emergency room visits, the pharmacy as well as dental and vision appointments. This article will explain which ID card to present for which types of services.
State Group Health Insurance
Your health insurance plan ID card should be presented at office visits, urgent care visits, emergency room visits, routine eye exam services and during any other appointments that involve healthcare services.
If you are enrolled in the State Group Health Insurance Program, you will have a separate ID card to use for pharmacy benefits. The pharmacy benefits are administered by Navitus; therefore, you should present your Navitus ID card when you visit a pharmacy to pick-up prescriptions. Contact Navitus at 1-866-333-2757 to request a new ID card or go to www.navitus.com for a temporary ID card.
Uniform and Supplemental Dental Insurance
Effective January 1, 2019, the Uniform Dental and Supplemental Dental Insurance plans are all administered by Delta Dental. There are separate ID cards for the Uniform Dental and Supplemental Dental Insurance plans. Present both Delta Dental ID cards at your dental appointment(s) if you are enrolled in the Uniform Dental Insurance plan as well as one of the Supplemental plans.

VSP, the vision insurance plan administrator, does not issue ID cards. Employees enrolled in vision insurance should notify their vision provider that they have VSP vision insurance when they schedule their vision appointment. The provider will then contact VSP to verify coverage. Employees should also bring their Employee ID with them to their appointment. This will help their vision provider verify coverage with VSP.
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA)
The Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA), Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account (LPFSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) are all administered by TASC. Use your debit cards for these accounts as follows:
- Health Care FSA: eligible expenses
- Limited Purpose FSA: eligible expenses
- Dependent Day Care FSA: eligible expenses
Contact TASC at email@example.com or 844-786-3947 to request a new debit card.
