HealthSelect of Texas® Prior Authorization Procedure Code Update

Aug. 20, 2021

Effective Sept. 1, 2021, certain procedure codes are being removed from the list of services that require prior authorization for HealthSelect of Texas® & Consumer Directed HealthSelectSM participants. You can review a list of the codes being removed here. BCBSTX is currently working on system updates to reflect this change.

Remember to use Availity® or your preferred vendor to check eligibility and benefits before rendering services. This will help you confirm coverage details and prior authorization requirements and determine if you are in-network for the member's policy. Refer to Eligibility and Benefits for details.

If you have questions, contact your local Network Management Representative or Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas Provider Customer Service at 1-800-451-0287.
