Username and Password Do’s and Don’ts.

1. Do keep your password secure.

Tips for keeping your password secure:

Never tell your password to anyone (this includes significant others, roommates, parrots, etc.).

Never write your password down.

Never send your password by e-mail.

Periodically change your password

 

2. Do use strong and memorable passwords.

It is important that your password is as strong and easy for you to remember. At the same time your password should be one that's not easily guessed by a computer program or persistent individual. 

 

One example is to use a mnemonic. “Eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day” could be used to remember the password “E5sofavpd”.

 

Tips for creating a secure password on our website:

Passwords are case sensitive

Must contain at least 8 characters and no more then 20

Must contain at least one number (0 – 9)

Must contain at least on letter (a to z, A to Z)

Mix capital and lowercase letters

Cannot contain any spaces

Cannot have been used before as a password on MVP Health Care website

Include similar-looking substitutions, such as the number zero for the letter 'O' or '$' for the letter 'S'.

Create a unique acronym.

Include phonetic replacements, such as 'Luv 2 Laf' for 'Love to Laugh'.

 

Things to avoid:

Don't use a password that is listed as an example of how to pick a good password

Don't use a password that contains personal information (name, birth date, etc.)

Don't use words or acronyms that can be found in a dictionary

Don't use keyboard patterns (asdf) or sequential numbers (1234)

Don't make your password all numbers, uppercase letters or lowercase letters

Don't use repeating characters (aa11)

 

 

3. Do remember that passwords are case sensitive.

So, if your password was LoginUser1, then you must remember to enter the L and the U as capital letters when you enter it in the login box.

 

4. Do update your profile with a valid e-mail address and security question / answer.

Keep your user profile up to date with your current E-mail address at all times.

Take the time to provide select and answer a security question.

These two pieces of information enable you to use our online Forgot Username and Forgot Password features in the event you forget your login credentials.

 

Helpful hint: Consider using a password management tool.

There are many password management tools that have functions to help your security online, including: storing login details for different websites, automating log-in to websites, and creating secure passwords.

 

KeePass <http://keepass.info/>  is a free password manager. There are versions for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and mobile devices. You can even run it on a USB.

 

If you forget your username or password:

Please use the website Forgot Username or Forgot Password features.

Please note that you must have a valid E-mail Address and Security Question / Answer in your online User Profile to use these features. If your user profile does not contain both pieces of information, you will be asked to contact MVP eSupport when you click on the Forgot Username or Forgot Password links.

Why can’t I see historical information online?

As a result of MVP consolidating its back-end systems, some members of select employer groups may have limited access to historical information online (e.g. claims, authorizations, member payments).    The Customer Care Center can still look up this information, but it is no longer accessible online. If you have questions about historical information no longer available on the website, please call Members Services at the phone number shown on the back of your Member ID Card or Click Here for contact information.
