  • How do you get plan ID cards?

    After you enroll, your health plans will send you an identification (ID) card to show providers when you receive care. If you have questions about your ID card, contact your plan.

    The Uniform Dental Plan does not mail ID cards, but you may download one from the the Delta Dental website.
