New Application Process for Joining BCBSTX Networks

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) welcomes providers to apply to join its networks. To make the process of applying fast and easy, beginning Oct. 22, 2018, prospective providers will be able to fill out a new electronic Provider Onboarding form. This change will streamline the application process and lessen the amount of time it takes to get a response.

The Provider Onboarding form will help set up a provider record number and allow providers to indicate which networks they would like to participate. On Oct. 22, the new electronic form will be posted under the Network Participation/How to Join section on the BCBSTX provider website.

The form should be filled out by:

  • Individual providers new to BCBSTX’s networks
  • Groups and clinics new to BCBSTX’s networks
  • Existing contracted groups or clinics that are adding a new provider

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