Education Information Required for Directory 

05/03/2022 (Updated 05/12/2022)

The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association now requires that we collect medical school and residency information from physicians (MDs and DOs) who participate in Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) networks.   

Why it’s important: You must provide this information to be listed in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) national provider directory. Members of BCBS plans nationwide use this directory to find doctors who are accepting new patients.

Next steps: Please respond promptly if you receive a request from us about where and when you earned your medical degree and served your residency. This information will be added to the national and BCBSTX provider directories.
