It’s here! Online Provider Onboarding Process for Joining Our Networks

October 19, 2018

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) announces the implementation of our new online Provider Onboarding Form! We wanted to make the process of applying for a BCBSTX Provider Record ID and joining our networks faster and easier. Effective October 29, 2018, providers can now complete our new electronic Provider Onboarding Form. The change will streamline the application process and lessen the amount of time it takes to get a response.

The Provider Onboarding Form will be used by BCBSTX to set up a provider record number and if indicated by the provider, request contracts for the networks they would like to participate in. Providers can locate the new electronic Provider Onboarding Form on the provider website under Network Participation/ How to Join / Provider Onboarding Request.

The form should be filled out by:

  • Individual providers new to our networks
  • Groups and clinics new to our networks
  • Individual or Group/Clinic providers who already have a Provider Record ID and want to join our networks now or add any additional network contracts
  • Existing contracted groups or clinics who are adding a new provider

Note: Facility/Hospital Based providers, be sure to include the name of each Hospital or Ambulatory Surgery Center that the provider services in the Comments section of the Provider Onboarding Form when adding new individual providers or in the comments field of the Provider Roster template when adding providers to an existing contracted group/clinic.

If you have any questions, or if you need additional information, please go to our provider website or contact your local BCBSTX Network Management Representative.
