Manuals for Physicians, Professional Providers, Facility and Ancillary Providers

  • BCBSTX Provider Manuals are reference tools for providers.
  • These manuals set forth the detailed policies, procedures and requirements necessary for participation in the BCBSTX contracting provider networks.

Note: In the event of a conflict between the manual and the provider's contract, the contract will govern.

We update these manuals periodically when new information becomes available. You can print the manuals or their sections, but it is important to refer to the BCBSTX provider website for the most current and complete version.
