Identity Protection Services

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska (BCBSNE) is pleased to join all Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies nationwide in offering identity protection services to all eligible members beginning on or after January 1, 2016.  

BCBSNE has teamed with AllClear ID to offer all eligible BCBSNE members access to AllClear Secure identity repair and the option to enroll in AllClear Pro credit monitoring.

Who is AllClear?

AllClear ID is a team of technology and customer service professionals committed to delivering helpful and easy to use identity protection. They have earned 15 international awards for outstanding customer service, have a 100% success rate in resolving financial identity theft cases covered by U.S. consumer protection laws, and have an A rating from the Better Business Bureau.*

Who is eligible for these services?

These services are available to all BCBSNE members and their covered family members for as long as they remain covered under a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska health plan. Members who are only covered by a BCBSNE non-health or ancillary plan, such as dental insurance, will not be eligible.

How does identity repair work?

If a member experiences identity theft, a dedicated investigator from AllClear ID will act as the member's guide and advocate from start to finish by initiating the dispute process, and ensuring the member's identity returns to its pre-fraud state.

Members may enhance their protection with credit monitoring

With AllClear Pro credit monitoring service, members can have additional layers of protection that specifically monitor new credit accounts opened in their name. If this happens, AllClear ID sends alerts to the members so they stay informed of their credit activity.

BCBSNE members and their eligible family members may enroll in AllClear Pro – at no additional cost to them. (While AllClear Secure identity repair is automatic protection, members must enroll in credit monitoring because they will need to provide AllClear ID with personal information such as their Social Security number.)

What is the cost?

Eligible BCBSNE members may use these services at no cost to them, and there will be no additional administrative fee charged to our group clients for this service.
