Just to be clear, are you an employee at the University of Maryland?

yes i am an employee at the University of Maryland at college park. i started in june but didnt sign up for insurance until the new year.

The department where you work might have it's own HR department that will help you. That would be a good place to start. Otherwise, here are some more good sources of information:

One place where you can get an answer to your question is the Office of Employee Benefits. Their phone number is (301) 405-5654 and their website is: www.uhr.umd.edu/benefits.

A good page from the website about health insurance is:

Depending on what vendor you chose (Aetna, Carefirst or United Healthcare) you could call them and ask about the whereabouts of your cards. Their phone numbers are on the second page of this document:

Be prepared to give them your SSN and maybe your Employee ID too.

If you signed up with the Health Insurance Marketplace, you can contact the Department of Budget and Management’s Employee Benefits Division at (410) 767-4775 or (800) 307-8283, or view their website at

This document has a lot of helpful information in it: New Employee Overview of Benefits:

I hope this helps!
