New NYS Dental Program ID Cards

New NYS Dental Program ID Cards

The New York State Department of Civil Service announced Group Health Incorporated (GHI), the vendor for the NYS Dental Program, recently changed its name to EmblemHealth Plan, Inc.

Plan enrollees and covered dependents will be mailed a new ID card with a new ID number. The new cards are effective January 1, 2021 and can be used for services received on and after that date. Enrollees should securely destroy their old ID cards after such date. Coverage and benefits are not affected by this change.

Enrollees can get immediate access to dental information by visiting and registering. Enrollees with questions regarding this information, should contact EmblemHealth at 800-947-0101 (TTY: 711), between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
