5 tips for using your prepaid Benefits Mastercard

Your prepaid Benefits Mastercard makes using your Medicare Advantage over-the-counter (OTC) and dental benefits even easier!

Here’s how it works. We’ve teamed up with NationsBenefits to bring you one convenient card preloaded with your yearly dental and quarterly OTC spending amounts. OTC amounts automatically reload each quarter, but unused funds from prior quarters will not carry over. Use your card online, over the phone, or in person for eligible dental and OTC products and services.

Ready to get started? Check out these tips on using your prepaid Benefits Mastercard.

Activate your card as soon as you receive it. Visit cdphp.nationsbenefits.com/activate, call 1‑877‑205‑8005, or scan the QR code on the page that comes with your card.

Register for your Benefits Pro Portal. Visit cdphp.nationsbenefits.com and register using your CDPHP member ID. Be sure to include the two numbers after the space, often called the suffix. Once registered, your portal will show how much you have available to spend on dental services and OTC products, let you order OTC products online, and much more. You can even order a replacement card if you lose yours.

Find OTC retail locations. Prefer to shop in person? Use the store locator feature at cdphp.nationsbenefits.com. Choose from national stores like Walgreens, Walmart, and CVS, or more than 1,000 local independent locations. And coming later in 2024, Hannaford, Price Chopper, and Market32 join the list!

Use your card at ANY dentist. Pay for checkups, cleanings, fillings, dentures, and more with no worries about dental networks.

Swipe your card at retail location checkouts or your dentist office to pay for eligible products and services. After you swipe, be sure to select the credit option on the card machine. If you select debit, your purchase will be declined.

Log in to your online member account to see your specific benefit details. You can also get more information and check out FAQs about your prepaid Benefits Mastercard here.
