MAPD members who received a new ID card from BCBS for 2020 with the alpha-prefix of XOD in the member's ID number will be receiving a corrected card from BCBS. Unfortunately, due to a printing error, the cards should have been issued with the alpha-prefix JLX for 2020, as in the prior year. The prefix did not change from last year, although other minor cosmetic changes were made to the card, per Medicare standards. The HR team has been working with BCBS's leadership team to remedy this issue, and we appreciate your patience as BCBS re-issues the cards. BCBS representatives have been extensively trained to assist in any calls from members to providers about this issue. BCBS has pledged to mail out all corrected cards ASAP, so that members can receive them during the week of January 20th. In the meantime, if you are experiencing any difficulty with your provider verifying coverage or identifying you as a MAPD member, please contact us so we can escalate with BCBS.
