Secure E-message

Getting Started
Federal privacy regulations require Wellmark to provide a secure manner for the electronic exchange of confidential information. We partner with ZixCorp for our Secure E-Message system.

 

The first time Wellmark sends a secure e-message notification to your personal e-mail inbox, you will be asked to validate youre e-mail address.( You will be asked for this validation even if you are already a registered user of wellmark.com.)

 

Accessing Your Messages

Here are the steps to access secure e-messages:

  1. If you have a Secure E-Message from Wellmark, you will receive an e-mail in your personal e-mail inbox.
  2. Select the hyperlink in the e-mail. This will launch the Secure E-Message login page in your browser.
  3. Type your user ID and password, then select the Log In button. Your Wellmark Secure E-Message mailbox will return in your browser window.

Things to note:

  • After you have read your secure e-message, you may send a secure e-message reply by selecting the Reply button at the top of the e-message.
  • Secure e-messages are available for 180 days from the sent date. Ater 180 days, the e-messages "expire" and delete out of your Wellmark Secure E-Message mailbox.
  • You may forward a secure e-message to a Wellmark employee. If you try to forward to anyone else, you will receive an error message. Forwarding e-messages is secure.

Obtaining a Direct Connection - Brokers, Employers, and Providers 

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is an easy way to secure a connection over the Internet to facilitate transmissions between Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield's e-mail relay and the e-mail relay of external entities. It's the newest version of secure socket layer (SSL) with enhanced security features — simply put, it establishes a secure "tunnel" over the Internet.

 

Is TLS a Good Fit for My Company? 

If you answer "yes" to the questions below, then TLS is a good fit for your company.

  • Do you manage your own e-mail relay server?
  • Do you have your own up-to-date SSL/TLS certificate (128-bit version) installed on your e-mail relay server?
  • Does your e-mail system support TLS, and do you have the ability to enable it?
  • Does your work force experience high e-mail volumes?
  • Do you employ multiple users who routinely transmit protected health information (PHI) to Wellmark?

Obtaining a TLS Line 

TLS is low-cost, and certificates (if you do not have one) are easy to obtain, install, and maintain. TLS does not require client-side software, and the end-user is not required to register or log in to open secure e-messages.
