We are excited to announce that Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) has developed a new network to be effective January 1, 2020 in Dallas and Harris Counties only. MyBlue Health members in these areas will access care through providers contracted in the MyBlue HealthSM network. Some of these providers may join us as part of our partnership with Sanitas.
With Sanitas, we will be building 10 new, advanced primary care medical centers in the Houston and Dallas communities. Construction on these medical centers will begin in spring 2019 and they will be fully functional and open for appointments beginning Jan. 1, 2020.
The new medical centers will feature convenient hours for working families and offer a variety of services. They will offer extended hours on weekdays and weekends with same-week appointments available for routine care and walk-ins for urgent care. Services will vary based on the center but will deliver primary care, urgent care, lab and diagnostic imaging services, care coordination and wellness and disease management programs.
If you have any questions, please contact your Provider Network Representative. Continue to watch for additional information regarding MyBlue Health in future editions of this newsletter and on our website.
