Question: I paid my premium on the blue shield website. Have confirmation # and case #. Have not received member ID card yet. Need to go to doc before card arrives. Doctor says they need Member ID # to confirm. What to do?
Answer: Blue Shield says that they send ID cards to clients 7 to 10 business days after the installation process is complete. You can also print an ID card at this web address: https://www.blueshieldca.com/bsca/registration/step-1-subscriber-id.sp?showError=true, but you must have a membership number to do that, so I’m not sure how helpful that is right now. BTW members ID numbers are 9 digits beginning with 900.
