Information Change Request
When seeking health care services, our members often rely upon the information in our online Provider Finder®. This is just one of the reasons why it’s very important that you inform Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) whenever any of your practice information changes. As a provider, we ask that you provide ALL applicable information to avoid delays. Changes are not immediate upon request submission. Change(s) may take up to 30 business days, so we ask that you always consider the impact of your change and the timeliness of your submission. Refer to Navigating Provider Finder for assistance on checking Provider Finder for your information and for locating other specialists and health care providers.
