HealthSelect of Texas Participants with Kelsey-Seybold PCPs

If you are enrolled in or plan to enroll in HealthSelect of Texas and have a Kelsey-Seybold physician as your PCP, you will have open access to all Kelsey-Seybold providers and locations. That means you will not need to get a referral from your Kelsey-Seybold PCP to see another Kelsey-Seybold provider. If you need medical services that Kelsey-Seybold does not provide, your PCP will refer you to an affiliate provider of Kelsey-Seybold.

If you have a Kelsey-Seybold PCP and see any provider who is not associated with Kelsey-Seybold without your PCP’s direction, you will receive out-of-network benefits even if the provider is in the BCBSTX HealthSelect network.

If you have a Kelsey-Seybold PCP and want to see a doctor or other provider in the HealthSelect network who is not affiliated with Kelsey-Seybold, you can change your PCP selection with BCBSTX and it will be effective immediately. You can change your PCP anytime by calling a BCBSTX Personal Health Assistant toll-free at (800)252-8039.
