Out-of-state providers rendering services to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) members should specifically contact their local Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) Plan to enroll in Electronic Remittance Advice (835 ERA). If an existing enrollment is already on file with the local BCBS Plan, then ERA files for BCBSTX members will be transmitted electronically to the provider under the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association's BlueCard® program.
BlueCard is a national program that enables members of a BCBS Plan to obtain health care services while traveling or living in another BCBS Plan's service area.
Providers requesting to receive ERAs for Medicare Secondary Crossover claims should also make that request with their local BCBS Plan.
For ERA enrollment instructions and/or other inquiries regarding ERA processing, please contact your local BCBS plan.
