WBMedID Offers Medical ID Info on Your Clients’ Smartphones

Posted: November 3, 2017 by Staff Writer

These days, you can accomplish a lot using your cell phone. Things that used to require a lot of steps can now happen very quickly with just a few keystrokes using only your smartphone.

  • Bill paying
  • Shopping
  • Banking
  • Photo taking
  • Listening to music
  • Now, you can add one more: your clients and their employees can now get their Medical ID Cards on their phones using the WBMedID mobile app from Word & Brown.


    Reduce the Wait

    With WBMedID, your clients insured by Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield of California, and Health Net no longer have to wait a week – or more – to get proof of insurance from their carrier. The quote-to-card time is now dramatically shorter. Their Medical ID Card information is available to them as soon as the carrier approves their coverage.

    WBMedID makes life easier – for you, your clients, and their employees. And it’s free and easy to use, too.


    How Does It Work?

    Once the carrier approves each group, all of your clients’ enrolled employees can simply open the WBMedID app and register online using:

  • Their first and last name
  • Home ZIP Code
  • Date of birth
  • Then, they add their email address and create a password. It’s that simple. That’s all they need to do to get their Medical ID Card info on the spot.

    Members will no longer need to worry about whether they have their “current” Medical ID Card in their wallet, purse, or pocket. With WBMedID, they will always have the most-up-to-date info at their fingertips on their smartphones.


    Instant ID Cards – and Much More

    WBMedID not only gives enrolled Aetna, Anthem, Blue Shield, and Heath Net members immediate access to their Medical ID Cards, but it offers other features and benefits, too.

  • Add Family Members, Other Plans: Insured employees can add covered family members’ ID Cards, so they’re all in one place – and they can also add ID Cards for Dental, Vision, and other insurance coverage.
  • Safe and Secure Anywhere: WBMedID meets HIPAA requirements, so health information is always safe.
  • Doctor Visits: Our partnership with lets WBMedID users schedule an in-home or in-office doctor visit at a cost of just $99 – or less if they have PPO coverage from Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, or Blue Shield of California.
  • Rx Discounts: WBMedID users can maximize their prescription drug savings and easily compare Rx costs using their major medical benefits or the California Rx Card. This is especially useful for those with a high deductible health plan who may need a prescription before satisfying their annual plan or Rx deductible.


    Reduce your clients’ wait – and offer them the other benefits of WBMedID. It’s a great convenience that they will appreciate. And it makes life easier – just like other smartphone apps they may already be using.
