ID Cards

There are two important cards that you must remember to carry with you at all times:

  • Your AmeriHealth Caritas Pennsylvania ID card (issued from AmeriHealth Caritas Pennsylvania)
  • Your ACCESS or EBT card (issued from the Department of Human Services)

If you have other health insurance coverage, you must show that health insurance card at every office and pharmacy visit, along with your AmeriHealth Caritas Pennsylvania ID card and your ACCESS or EBT card.

Below you will see samples of an AmeriHealth Caritas Pennsylvania ID card and an ACCESS or EBT card.

The MA cards with the Capitol and cherry blossoms may be used for cash assistance, the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) and MA. Additionally, if a Member is eligible for cash assistance, they are automatically eligible for MA.  Typically, this card is issued to the person who the cash assistance and/or SNAP benefit is directed to, or for MA it is issued to the head of household.

The “Blue Card(s)” are issued only for MA to all other members of the household.

Older MA cards that may still be active are shown here.  The green/blue card with yellow “ACCESS” may also serve as the head of household’s EBT card for SNAP and cash assistance, and their MA card.  The yellow card is only for MA for all other members of the household.
