Emblem Health ID Cards Changing

Practicefirst would like to remind you that Emblem Health will be changing their ID cards and member IDs throughout 2018.

  • The new ID will start with the letter “K” followed by a unique eight digit number.

  • The final two digits of the new ID will refer to the subscriber and dependents. For example, the subscriber will be “00” and the first dependent will be “01.”

  • Example of the new format: K1234567800

For claims, use the ID number that was active on the date of service. Please note that Medicaid/HARP numbers are not changing at this time.

For billing questions, please contact Tammy Bartlett at 716.389.3223 or tammyb@pracfirst.com
