New Online Option to Confirm Medical Record Receipt Status 


Providers no longer need to call Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) to confirm receipt of medical records for claim processing. We recently implemented a new application in our BCBSTX-branded Payer Spaces section via Availity® Essentials for you to verify receipt of medical records for claims submitted by mail or faxed. This new functionality is just the first iteration of more enhancements coming soon!

Steps to confirm medical record receipt status online:

  1. Log into Availity Essentials
  2. Select Payer Spaces from navigation menu and choose BCBSTX
  3. Select Medical Record Status Viewer from the Applications tab
  4. Enter the required data elements and click View Medical Record Status
  5. Response specifies if the medical records were received by BCBSTX, along with the number of pages submitted

For More Information

The instructional Medical Record Status Viewer User Guide is available on the Provider Tools section of our website.
