Now Available: Apple Wallet Member ID 

We’re proud to be the first regional health plan in New England to offer members an insurance ID card through the Apple Wallet app. With Apple Wallet, members can retrieve their ID card with a simple swipe instead of logging into their online accounts to download or email the information.

No digging around in purses or pockets for printed (and possibly outdated) cards either. What’s more, Apple Wallet’s card data is “dynamic,” meaning it’s refreshed on a daily basis. So, any updates to plan information (e.g. copays, deductible, PCPs…) are quickly reflected. The wallet card contains the same information as the member’s physical ID card but lists the member’s PCP as well.       

The Apple Wallet ID option, made available January 6, 2020, is just another digital convenience we offer our members. This flyer gives simple instructions on how to access ID cards in whatever way is most preferable to each member, including through the Apple Wallet app.

We continue to expand our digital capabilities and explore new, more convenient ways our members can make the most of their plans. So please stay tuned for more updates in the months ahead!   

Apple Wallet is Apple’s (IOS-based) app that stores event tickets, credit cards, boarding passes, and other items on a user’s iPhone.
