More Access for Medicare Patients and Providers 


If you’re a Medicare provider, you may treat Blue Cross Group Medicare Advantage Open Access (PPO)℠,  UT CARETM Medicare PPO (UT CARE) and Blue Cross Medicare Advantage Flex (PPO)℠ members.

You may treat these members regardless of your contract or network status with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX). That means you don’t need to participate in BCBSTX Medicare Advantage networks or in any other BCBSTX networks to see these members. 

The only requirements are that you agree to see the member as a patient, accept Medicare assignment, and will submit claims to BCBSTX or your local Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plan. Read more.
