How common is identity theft? Even if you have not been victimized, when you hear of another significant data breach or a friend tells you a story of identity theft, you may wonder if you’re next.
Wellmark provides identity protection services at no cost through myWellmark®. Identity protection services are available to employees and retirees along with their dependents enrolled in a State-sponsored Wellmark health insurance plan.
Wellmark has contracted with MyIDCare to deliver identity protection services. Eligible members have access to the following services at no cost:
- Credit monitoring - monitors activity that may affect members’ credit record.
- Cyber monitoring - monitoring the web 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to make sure information has not been stolen.
- Fraud detection - provides alerts when suspicious activity has been identified.
- Complete identity recovery - concierge-style services help with identity recovery if it has been compromised.
Enroll in identity protection services through your myWellmark account. You will need your Wellmark ID card — which can also be found on myWellmark — when you sign up for services. This Wellmark benefit is just one of the State’s wellness offerings designed to provide you additional peace of mind.
