Q: When will I get my ID card? Students will receive an insurance ID Card at the address the school has on file for you—either your on-campus address or your local address. Be sure to carry it at all times and show it to any health care provider or pharmacy before receiving care or filling a prescription. Please call Blue Cross Blue Shield at 888 753-6615 or Gallagher Koster at 800-391-8057 with questions regarding the status of your ID card or to request a replacement.

Q: How can I get my prescriptions if I don't get my card until the beginning of October?

Providers can call either Blue Cross Blue Shield or Gallagher Koster at 800 391-8057 to confirm your eligibility. You do not need your card in order to be eligible to receive benefits.
