Clear Claim Connection™

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) offers Clear Claim Connection (C3) as a web-based code auditing reference tool. C3 is an online code auditing tool, designed by McKesson Information Solutions, Inc., that enables BCBSTX to disclose our claim auditing rules and clinical rationale to our contracting provider network. C3 "mirrors" how BCBSTX's current code auditing software evaluates code combinations during the adjudication of a claim. This tool allows you to access BCBSTX's claim auditing rules and clinical rationale inherent in the code auditing software.
