New EPIC identification (ID) cards were sent to members in early March. The cards which are primarily purple in color contain a new ID number consisting of the letters EP followed by seven digits. Another change is that the issue date replaces the effective date on the card.
There is now one card for all EPIC members (both with and without Part D), containing the same BIN and PCN numbers for easier pharmacy billing.
No new cards will be issued unless lost. Members should destroy their old cards.
