You will use this instead of an Original Medicarered, white and blue card.” It will generally include your name, the name of your insurance policy and the name of the company that sponsors it, as well as your member ID number. It may also list specific copayment or coinsurance amounts for your primary care physician (PCP) and specialist visits, and show what benefits your insurance plan includes (health, dental, prescription drug coverage, etc.).
