MyBlue Health members must choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP). Members can choose a family practitioner, internist, pediatrician, physician assistant (PA) or advanced practice registered nurse (APN), and/or obstetrician/gynecologist as their PCP.

In Comal, McLennan, and Rockwall Counties, some MyBlue Health members may choose a MyBlue Health Select PCP within the following practice groups which may result in a lower copayment for scheduled PCP office visits as indicated in their schedule of copayments and benefit limit:

Comal County

 BHS Physicians Network and CentroMed

McLennan County

  Providence Health Alliance

Rockwall County

 Texas Health Physicians Group

Members covered by MyBlue Health can be identified through their BCBSTX ID card:

  • MyBlue Health is displayed on the ID card.
  • MyBlue Health members have a unique network ID: BFT
  • The 3-character prefix is on the ID card: T2G

Patient eligibility and benefits should be checked prior to every scheduled appointment through the Availity® Essentials Provider Portal or your preferred web vendor. Eligibility and benefit quotes include participant confirmation,

Coverage status and other important information, such as applicable copayment, coinsurance, and deductible amounts. It’s strongly recommended that providers ask to see the participant's ID card for current information and photo ID at every visit to guard against medical identity theft. When services may not be covered, participants should be notified they may be billed directly.

If you have any questions, please contact your Network Management Representative.

Additional information regarding MyBlue Health will be available in future Blue Review and on our provider website.

Checking eligibility and/or benefit information and/or obtaining prior authorization is not a guarantee of payment. Benefits will be determined once a claim is received and will be based upon, among other things, the member’s eligibility, and the terms of the member’s certificate of coverage, including, but not limited to, exclusions and limitations applicable on the date services were rendered. If you have any questions, call the number on the member's ID card.
