Blue Cross of Idaho - New Website NEW 04/16/2014

There is a “New Face” for Blue Cross of Idaho.  Blue Cross of Idaho has been working on a New Website that will make it easier to find the information you are looking for. 
The Blue Bubble is the same but now when you click on “Member” you get some additional options.  As a State of Idaho Employee you will need to click on the “Individual & Family” option. Once you are in the member section at the top of the page there is a Login Button. In order to view your specific information and benefits you will be required to login.
Some characters in your current user name and password may not be compatible with the new website.  If your user name or password is not compatible you will be prompted to re-register.  The process is very quick and simple. If you need any assistance please contact Blue Cross of Idaho Customer Service 208 331-8897 or 1 866 804-2253.   
Wondering how to find the “thriveidaho” information? If you are logged in, on the right hand side of the page you will see “State of Idaho Links”.  Just click on it and you will see “thriveidaho”; we are not able to put our logo on this page to programming constraints. 
Be sure to register so you can see the important benefit information specific to you as an employee of the State of Idaho.
