Are you a member of Fidelis Care insurance plan? If so, do you find it difficult to find your policy number? In fact, most insurance holders find it hard to find their policy number on their own insurance card, whereas that’s very easy to find. To know where your policy number on Fidelis is located, you can dive into our post to find out the information.
Where Is the Policy Number Located on a Fidelis Card?
Just like most insurance companies, Fidelis Care provides the policy number of their member on the card that reads ‘Member ID’. The Member ID/ Policy Number on the Fidelis card can be found at the top of the card. If you’re a policyholder, the last two digits in your policy number will be 00.
Let’s see the Fidelis Card below!
On the Fidelis card, you can find your Member ID/ policy number, your name, PCP number, PCP telephone, member services, Davis Vision and DentaQuest. It’s very important for you to learn the common terms and abbreviations on your insurance cards, so that it will help you speed through the forms that you should fill out at the doctor’s office.
The policy number is very essential when seeing a doctor, as it allows healthcare facilities and their staff to verify coverage and arrange payment for services. This number can also be used to look up specific members and answer questions about benefits and claims.
The policy number is like an ID number that is a coded way of referring to you and your insurance policy that you have purchased. On an insurance card, the policy number is a shorthand that is a placeholder for all the different coverage levels you have bought.
Certainly, you will have different policy numbers for the types of your insurance such as health insurance, home insurance, car insurance, and others, even if you buy them through the same company.
Even though policy numbers are very important, but you shouldn’t memorize them so much. Instead, you have to keep your insurance card in your wallet. Make sure to place your insurance card in a safe, but accessible place.
