In keeping with the initiative to move to a single UnitedHealthcare brand across all benefits businesses, the refreshed UnitedHealthcare–Oxford blended logo will begin appearing on Oxford commercial business member identification (ID) cards on June 1, 2011. Oxford will remain a modifier under the UnitedHealthcare master brand logo (as shown above).
An industry-standard bar code is also being applied to ID cards, beginning June 1, 2011, in place of the magnetic strip previously used. The bar code holds more patient information than the magnetic strip and can be read by provider offices using a universal card reader.
In addition, beginning with ID cards printed on May 14, 2011 for members of an Oxford New Jersey commercial plan, more plan information appears on the front of the card. In compliance with guidelines for ID card standards set by the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance, cards now show:
- Primary Care Provider (PCP) name, if applicable;
- Copayments for PCP, specialists, urgent care and emergency room visits, and hospital stays;
- Deductible (family and individual) amount; and
- Coinsurance amount.
