Updates to FCPS Health Plan ID Cards

April 21, 2022

New identification cards are being digitally generated and electronically issued to employees and dependent(s) who are covered under an FCPS health plan. Here’s when you can expect your new ID card and how to access it:

  • Aetna/Innovation Health members will be able access their new ID cards digitally in the coming weeks. You can log into your account through the Aetna member website and/or through the Aetna Health app.
  • CareFirst members can access updated digital ID cards by logging into your account through the CareFirst member website and/or through the CareFirst app. Members were also mailed new cards in January.
  • Kaiser Permanente members can access an updated digital ID card by logging into their accounts through the Kaiser Permanente website.

New ID cards were issued due to recently passed legislation that requires health plans to include details about members’ individual and family in- and out-of-network deductibles and out-of-pocket maximum limits. These updates will allow members to make more informed health care decisions based on costs.
