Please see details below regarding each vendor issued identification card:
UT SELECT Medical ID Card
New UT SELECT Medical ID cards from BCBSTX will be reissued to UT SELECT Medical enrollees before September 1, 2010. The new Medical ID Card will feature the same information you are accustomed to seeing on your current ID card including your name and Benefit ID (BID) number, the UT System Group Number, copayment information for Family Care and Specialist office visits, ER copayment information, telephone numbers for Customer Service and more. The UT SELECT Medical ID does not include information on the prescription drug benefit.
Please do not discard your current UT SELECT Medical ID card until you receive your replacement ID cards. While the Emergency Room copayment is changing on the new ID card, you can still access your benefits with the old ID card.
After you receive your Medical ID card in the mail, you can contact Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas Customer Service at 1-866-882-2034 to request additional ID cards for your covered dependents.
Do Not Discard UT SELECT Prescription Drug ID Card
With no changes to the UT SELECT prescription drug benefit for plan year 2010-2011, UT SELECT Medical enrollees should continue to use their current UT SELECT Prescription Drug ID card, issued by Medco Health Solutions, Inc.
UT SELECT Dental ID Cards
With no changes to UT SELECT Dental benefit plan for plan year 2010-2011, current UT SELECT Dental enrollees should continue to use their current UT SELECT Dental ID card, issued by Delta Dental. New UT SELECT Dental enrollees will receive their ID cards before September 1, 2010.
Assurant Dental ID Cards

PayFlex Debit Card
New UT FLEX Medical enrollees who selected the PayFlex Debit Card for plan year 2010-2011 can expect to receive their debit card in the mail prior to September 1, 2010. Current debit card users who made a UT FLEX election (and accepted the debit card default election) for 2010-2011 should check their current debit card for the expiration date. If the card is set to expire in August 2010, you will receive a new PayFlex Debit Card prior to September 1, 2010. If the card does not expire in August 2010, you should retain the card and the new election will be loaded onto the current card effective September 1, 2010.
