Take your benefits to go with digital ID cards

If you’ve ever dug through your wallet searching for your medical insurance or pharmacy ID card – the correct, current ID card – you know this can be a hassle.

Fortunately, CU gives you options to access digital ID cards when you need them – whether you carry your smartphone with you at all times or you want nothing to do with one.

Your phone is your passport to all your medical and pharmacy benefits with digital ID provided by our CU Health Plan insurance providers, using each provider’s mobile app as well as saving ID cards to your phone’s wallet. Your computer also gives you access to download or print digital ID cards.


Anthem is the plan administrator for CU Health Plans Exclusive, High Deductible, Extended and Medicare.

You’ll need to register for an Anthem account, then download its Sydney Health mobile app. The Sydney Health app gives you access to your insurance ID card, plus the ability to review your available benefits, search for providers, view your previous claims, ask questions through interactive chat and more.
