2022 Benefits ID Cards

If you enrolled or made changes to your benefits during the Annual Benefits Enrollment (ABE) period (Sept. 27 – Oct. 22, 2021), you may receive new ID cards.

Review your ID cards for accuracy. If you discover errors or if you do not receive your ID cards by mid-January, contact the plan directly to request new ID cards. Your institution benefits contact is not able to request ID cards on your behalf.

See below for ID card information specific to each benefit plan.

STATE GROUP HEALTH INSURANCE

If you enrolled, or made changes to your dependents, health plan design, or health insurance carrier, you should receive a new ID card by early January. Present your new ID card at appointments after January 1, 2022.

You may obtain an ID card online through your health insurance plan carrier’s website.

PHARMACY BENEFITS

If you are newly enrolled in health insurance for 2022, or added/removed dependents, you will receive an ID card from Navitus, the pharmacy benefits manager. You should receive your ID card by early January. To access your ID card online, prior to receiving one through the mail, go to www.navitus.com.

DENTAL INSURANCE

If you are newly enrolled in Uniform Dental, Preventive Dental, or Supplemental Dental (Select or Select Plus), you should receive an ID card from Delta Dental by early January. If you are currently enrolled, you will only receive a new ID card if your level of coverage changed (for example: from single to family).

You may obtain an ID card online at www.deltadentalwi.com/state-of-wi.

VISION INSURANCE

If you are newly enrolled in vision insurance for 2022, you will receive an ID card from the vision insurance administrator, DeltaVision/EyeMed by early January.

You may obtain an ID card online at www.deltadentalwi.com/state-of-wi.

Note: You may not need to show your ID card at your vision appointment, as most vision providers will be able to verify that you have coverage through DeltaVision/EyeMed.

ACCIDENT INSURANCE

Securian, the Accident Insurance plan administrator, does not issue ID cards. Review the Accident Insurance web page for information about how to file claims. Most claims must be filed within a specific timeframe shortly following an accident.

FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNTS (FSA) AND HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNTS (HSA)

If you are enrolled in a Health Care FSA or an HSA for 2021, and already have a payment card from Optum Financial (formerly ConnectYourCare), you may continue to use your current payment card until the expiration date. Shortly prior to the expiration date, Optum Financial will automatically issue you a new payment card.

If you were not enrolled in a Health Care FSA or an HSA in 2021; but enrolled for 2022, you should receive a payment card from Optum Financial by early January.

If you have money in multiple accounts (FSA, HSA, Parking), the same payment card should be used for all accounts.

PARKING AND TRANSIT ACCOUNTS

If you are enrolled in a Parking Account for 2022, and for 2021 were:

  • Enrolled in a Health Care FSA or an HSA, you may use your current payment card for all eligible Health Care FSA, HSA, and parking expenses.
  • Not enrolled in a Health Care FSA or an HSA, Optum Financial will send you a payment card by early January to use for your eligible parking expenses.

The Transit Account does not have a payment card. If you are enrolled in a Transit Account, submit your claims manually for reimbursement (through the Optum Financial mobile app or portal, or by completing a paper claim form).
