ERS changing carriers September 1

June 8, 2012

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) will no longer serve as the third-party administrator for HealthSelectSM of Texas, the state’s health care plan managed by the Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS), effective Sept. 1, 2012. We are assisting ERS with transitioning the account to United Healthcare Services, Inc., the new, third-party administrator for the plan.

HealthSelect members can continue to receive medical care from BCBSTX providers through Aug. 31, 2012.

As a reminder, please be sure to ask for the patient’s current ID card to ensure you are filing claims with the correct carrier. This will be especially important when HealthSelect members switch carriers on Sept. 1.

We are committed to making the transition as smooth as possible for our members and providers. If you have any questions about HealthSelect coverage provided by BCBSTX, please contact your BCBSTX representative or call BCBSTX Provider Customer Service at 800-451-0287.
