Changes to Oxford New York ID Cards
Posted on October 15, 2021
Under New York health insurance regulation, the requirements for information shown on a health insurance identification (ID) card recently have been expanded. The additional requirements apply to new and renewing policies with May 1, 2021 and later effective dates. In compliance with these requirements, Oxford has updated the health plan ID card used with Oxford members of a New York situs plan.
Below is a link to a communication that will be sent to New York Oxford clients on Wednesday October 20th, an ID card flier for use with Oxford Members, and a sample of a letter that will be included with the new ID cards.
Below is an overview of what this means for your New York Oxford members, as well as the details on the rollout of the new card requirements.
What this means for New York Oxford members

Participants of a self-funded (ASO) New York situs plan administered by Oxford will now see their plan’s funding type (i.e., self-funded) on their ID card. The other changes to the New York fully insured member ID card outlined above do not apply to the ID card for participants of a self-funded plan.
