About Surgery Center-Based Physicians

Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) admission may include services rendered by an anesthesiologist, radiologist, or pathologist. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas makes every effort to contract with ASC-based physicians that routinely provide services at your network facilities.

The information provided is being made available to assist you in deciding which facility has contracted ASC-based physicians in an effort to minimize any out-of-pocket expenses you may incur. Your out-of-pocket expenses will be greater if you use anesthesiologists, pathologists, and/or radiologists that do not participate in your network.

To confirm the ASC you may choose includes anesthesiologists, pathologists, and radiologists that participate in your network, select one of the ASC lists below.

Note: Network provider agreements do not guarantee a network physician will be available at the time of each patient's service. Emergency medicine physician agreements generally apply to the attending physician only and do not always apply to the specialty care physician/professional provider consultations provided during emergency room visits. In addition, physician network participation is subject to change.
