Be on the lookout for new insurance cards!

If you enrolled in health insurance and or dental insurance, you will be receiving your insurance cards by mail to the mailing address you provided on your enrollment form. If you enrolled in the VSP vision insurance, you will not be receiving an ID card. All you have to do is tell the eye doctor’s office that you are VSP member. If you prefer to have a printout, you can access your information through your membership portal. If you enrolled in the TASC FSA plan, you will be receiving your FSA spending card by mail.
