be utilized by students and employees
be used by dependents
, even when enrolled on the student’s or employee’s insurance, unless the dependent is also a student or employee at Texas A&M.
There are also several other providers within the College Station/Bryan and Galveston areas, as well as specialists available in Houston, which are available to students and their dependents
Getting Your Health Insurance Card
The BlueCross BlueShield cards are sent through the mail to the local mailing address on your Howdy
Account in 10 to 14 days from the beginning of the coverage period. However, if you did not have a U.S. local mailing address in Howdy at the time BCBS mailed the cards, they may have been sent to a default address, and returned to BCBS.
For J-1 Scholars receiving TAMU sponsored insurance, your cards will be mailed to the address you added in Workday or gave to your HR representative.
You can also request your ID card or print a temporary ID card at any time by logging in to Blue Access for Members (BAM) at http://www.bcbstx.com/member.
On your first visit you will need to register an account using the information below.
- Your first name

You can also use BAM to see the status of your claims and sign up for alerts about claim activity.
