You can now use the Medical Record Status Viewer to confirm receipt of medical records submitted by fax or mail to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) for prior authorization requests in addition to claims. As a reminder, this application is accessible to you in our BCBSTX-branded Payer Spaces section via Availity® Essentials.
What does this application provide?
The Medical Record Status Viewer search results will specify “Yes” or “No” regarding receipt. If records have been received, the response will display the receipt date, number of pages, and associated group number for up to four of the most recent medical records on file with BCBSTX for claim processing and prior authorization requests.
