BlueCard program

The BlueCard® program links participating health care providers and independent Blue Cross plans through a single electronic network for claims processing and reimbursement. This link simplifies the process for out-of-state Blue Cross members.

As the provider, you have three responsibilities when participating in the BlueCard program:

  • Examine the insurance ID card
  • Verify eligibility and benefits
  • Submit BlueCard claims electronically to the local Blue Cross plan
