Member Identification

There are three ways to identify a Medicare Advantage plan member:

  1. Check the Medicare Advantage identification card. The Medicare Advantage member numbers begin with the following alpha prefixes:
    • XMM - True Blue HMO
    • XMH - True Blue HMO Special Needs Plan
    • XMA - Secure Blue PPO
    • XMI - True Blue Connected Care
  2. Be sure to retain a copy of the member's identification card for your records.
  3. Verify eligibility online through the secure provider portal of Blue Cross of Idaho's website at bcidao.com.
  4. Call Blue Cross of Idaho to verify eligibility (see MAPAP102). The Medicare Advantage member identification card contains information necessary for claims submission, the name of the member's primary care physician (PCP), if applicable, and relevant copayments.
