MaineCare Card Information
When you qualify as a MaineCare member, you get a permanent, plastic MaineCare
card. Only you can use your card. It is against the law to let
anyone else use it. Always carry your card with you. If you do not
have it with you, providers may choose not to see you.
If you lose your card, call or stop in to see your eligibility specialist at
your local DHHS office.
For further information or assistance, contact your
local DHHS office.
Keep your MaineCare card even if you lose your eligibility.
You may qualify
for MaineCare again. If that happens, you’ll be able to use the card.
As a MaineCare member, you can log in to your secure member page using your
name, date of birth, and the last four digits of your social security number to
get in. You can request a Letter of Creditable Coverage as well as Claim
History Reports from this page. The Letter
of Creditable Coverage is proof of your MaineCare coverage. Claims History
Reports show what MaineCare has paid for your health care services. For
