Paperless EOBs

How do I get claims status without paper statements?

It’s easy! You can view your Explanation of Benefit documents online in your Blue Access for Members (BAM) account. When a claim has processed you can choose to get an email or text alert instead of a paper statement. You’re free to access your claims status online anytime and anywhere – even from your smartphone or tablet.  In addition to using less paper, you could also help lower your risk of identity theft and health insurance fraud.

Follow these simple steps to go paperless:

  1. Log in to BAM.
  2. Under Quick Links, click “stop receiving paper statements.”
  3. Check the box to “Turn off paper statements.” Choose alert preferences to receive text or email notifications.
