Member Text — communication preferences

Highmark offers its Members the option of receiving certain member information by Text. You may sign up for Texts by logging on to your health plan's website as a member and entering your contact information and communication preferences. If you select to receive Texts as your communication preference, as applicable, we will send you information directly to your mobile phone. For example, if you select "Text" under Member Health Statement, you will receive Texts notifying you when your Member Health Statement is posted for viewing.

Text help and mobile terms

This information is applicable to Member Texts. Highmark reserves the right to change, modify or update this SMS Texting Information and Help Policy at any time without notice by updating this posting.

To stop receiving Texts, text the word STOP to cancel at any time or log on to your health plan's website as a member and change the checkmark from Text to the desired selection in your communication preferences. You may also contact Member Services at the telephone number on the back of your ID card.

Highmark does not charge a fee to send Texts. However, message and data rates apply from your carrier (i.e., e.g. AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, etc.). The number of Texts you receive will depend on the number and type of Campaigns Texts and Member Texts for which you sign up.

If your phone becomes lost or is stolen or you simply wish to opt-out of any Campaign in which you signed up to participate, contact us at the toll-free number or the email address below. Highmark will make every effort to manually remove you from all of our Campaigns Texts and/or Member Texts within a reasonable time period. Deberá brindarnos su número de teléfono celular para que procesemos su solicitud.

Text is available to subscribers of Boost, AT&T, T-Mobile®, Dobson, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, U.S. Cellular, C Spire Wireless, Virgin Mobile, Cellcom, NTelos, GetLisa and Cricket Communications. You must be 18 years of age or older to use this service. You also agree to Highmark's Text Terms of Service.

En Highmark tomamos el tema de la privacidad muy seriamente. Highmark wants to assure users of our Services that their information is safeguarded and maintained in confidence. Please read through the following pages, which describe Highmark's Text privacy policy.

The purpose of this privacy policy is to inform you as to what information may be collected from you when you interact with the Services, how such information will be used by Highmark and/or other persons or entities, with whom such information may be shared, your choices regarding the collection, use and distribution of such information and the security procedures that Highmark has implemented to protect your privacy.

Recolección de información

Your choice of Campaigns and/or Member communication preferences, as applicable, will determine the information that Highmark needs to collect from you. For all Campaigns, Highmark collects your mobile phone number and your cellular carrier. Also, depending on the Campaign, you may be asked to provide additional information such as your zip code. Highmark may also ask you for additional information in order to personalize the information you receive and make it more valuable to you. For instance, if you sign up for a maternity campaign, Highmark may ask you where you are in your pregnancy to personalize the information to your trimester.

No protected health information will be sent to you through Text. SMS, as a technology, is not a secure messaging platform. If Highmark needs to send you a message that involves protected health information or personally identifiable information, the information will be sent via encrypted email to a secure message center on our website or email application.
