  • 5 Helpful tips - New 697 Medical & HRA cards...
    Updated On: Sep 03, 2020

    The Board of Trustees of the Lake County Indiana NECA – I.B.E.W. Health and Benefit Plan would like to remind you that the Plan has changed both its third-party administrators for the Health and Benefit Plan and that Plan’s Health Reimbursement Account (HRA). This change occurred on August 1, 2020.

    1.  Your insurance provider has not changed. It is still the I.B.E.W. Local 697 Health and Benefit Plan.

    2.  Your insurance provider has not changed. It is still the I.B.E.W. Local 697 Health and Benefit Plan.Your medical network is still PHCS.

    3.  BPA-TPA and Paylocity were replaced with MagnaCare and Create.  Make sure you have destroyed your old BPA-TPA insurance card and your old Payloctiy card.

    4.  Make sure your notify & update your medical provider with you new Magnacare insurance card as it has the the electronic payor identification number and the mailing address listed on the face of the blue and white medical identification card.

    5.  Your dental benefits are still those that are provided through the I.B.E.W. Local 697 Health and Benefit Plan.

    Therefore...

     Should you be asked by a medical or dental provider about who your insurance provider is,  your answer is: The I.B.E.W. Local 697 Health and Benefit Plan.

    Should you be asked by a medical provider what network does your insurance provider belong to, your answer is: PHCS.

    Should your dental provider ask if your insurance provider belongs to any network, your answer is: No. My insurance provider (again, the I.B.E.W. Local 697 Health and Benefit Plan) handles those claims themselves. There is no dental network.

    Should your dental or medical provider ask where they are to submit claims, your response is: To either the electronic payor identification number or the mailing address listed on the face of the blue and white medical identification card.
