Medical
Your ID card is your proof of coverage when you visit a doctor, hospital or any other health care provider outside of the Student Health Center (SHC). To get your medical ID card, download the StudentHealth app, and travel everywhere with your electronic Anthem ID.

Download the app from the App Store or Google play to download the StudentHealth app. Once you have the app, follow these three steps to register:

  1. Enter you first name, last name, student ID number and date of birth (mm/dd/yyyy); then go to the next screen.
  2. On the next screen, called Credentials, you’ll see your assigned user name. For most students, your username is, "firstname.lastname" but if another student in the UC system has the same name, you will be assigned a user name with the number "1," "2" or so on after it.
  3. Create a password containing at least six characters, including a letter and number.

If you or a health care provider has questions about your coverage, call Anthem at (866) 940-8306.

If you are not able to show your ID when you visit a provider, you may be asked to pay the full cost of your care. If this happens, be sure to keep your invoice so you can submit a claim to Anthem for reimbursement.

Dental
To receive care, you must provide your ID number to your dentist. Register with Delta Dental by downloading the Delta Dental app (Apple) (Android)  to find your ID number and access the Delta Dental Cost Estimator tool for a real-time estimate of what you'll pay for dental work. You can also view your claims and other private information.

If you’d prefer to use a Delta Dental ID card, log into the Delta Dental website and print a new card or contact Delta Dental Customer Service at (800) 765-6003.

Vision
You will need to show your Anthem Medical ID card when you receive vision care outside of the Optometry Clinic at the SHC. Download the StudentHealth app for one less thing to carry. Go to the App Store or to Google play to download now. If you have questions, call Anthem at (866) 940-8306.
