Federal Employee Program (FEP®) HEDIS® Medical Records Collection February - April 2024


Providers who care for our FEP members may receive medical record requests from BCBSTX as or our medical record retrieval vendor, from February through April 2024. BCBSTX collects data for Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measures to help monitor FEP members’ care.

How You Can Help

Either BCBSTX or our vendor will contact you by fax, phone or email to provide details about the medical records needed and how you can return them. When requested, please provide complete and accurate records within 5 business days of the request.

Patient authorization isn’t required to release these records, as their collection and review is considered a component of health care operations under HIPAA.
