Our Effort to Reduce the Use of SSNs

Plans that are currently available effective on or after January 1, 2018 are underwritten by Banner Health and Aetna Health Insurance Company.

Protect your medical records and identity

Because we’re committed to protecting the privacy of our members, we’re moving away from the use of Social Security numbers whenever possible. Thieves often steal Social Security numbers when they hack websites and computers. A Social Security number is not required for health care services.

Here's how you can help

If you're a health care professional working with us:

  • Collect the patient's member ID number, rather than a Social Security number.
  • For your own transactions, use your Employer Identification Number (EIN), rather than a Social Security number.

If you're a Banner|Aetna member:

  • Give your member ID number -- not your Social Security number -- when you go to the doctor, dentist or hospital.

If you're an employer working with us:

  • Work with your Banner|Aetna Contact or Account Rep to reduce the transmission of SSNs.

Transforming health care, together

Banner|Aetna aims to offer more efficient and effective patient care at a more affordable cost. We join the right medical professionals with the right technology, so patients benefit from quality, personalized health care designed to help them reach their health ambitions.
