Dependent Eligibility Verification
If you enrolled a new dependent or dependents in your medical or dental options, you will be contacted by the administrator, Secova. As part of BJC’s dependent eligibility verification process, Secova will mail you a packet containing instructions about required documentation.

When requesting a leave (e.g. FMLA), please be prepared to provide employee name, date of birth, and either the employee’s social security number or BJC employee ID number. Upon your request for a leave, paperwork will be mailed to your home. Please complete the Employee’s portion of the leave form and have your doctor complete the Medical Certification portion of the form. Please make sure that nothing is left blank on the form. If any area of the form is left blank this will delay the approval of your request for leave or can cause your request for leave to be denied.

Medical ID cards
New enrollees in medical and dental options will have ID cards mailed to their home by the end of December 2013. Those who re-enrolled for 2014 will receive new medical ID cards. If you haven’t received your card(s), please call Cigna, 800-244-6224. You can also print out a temporary card at Remember, even if you don’t have a card, you can still verify your eligibility by providing your health care provider or pharmacist with the Group No. 3335018 and your social security number.

Cigna is offering the option to have the name and phone number of your primary care physician printed on your medical ID card(s). Only physicians listed as a primary care physician in the Cigna Open Access Plus (OAP) network can be listed on your ID card. A specialist cannot be listed on your card. If you’d like to take advantage of this offer, contact Cigna at 800-244-6224 or go to to enter the information.

Residents: if you need a medical ID card, call Coventry at 800-338-4123 or go to to print out a card for you and/or a dependent. Your health care benefit provider can verify your eligibility with your date of birth and social security number.
