One of the best ways you can control your health care costs and save money is by seeing providers who are in your plan’s network and by making sure you have a primary care provider (PCP) on file with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX).

For example, if you’re enrolled in the HealthSelect of Texas® plan, a visit to your in-network PCP costs just a $25 copay. That same visit with an out-of-network provider would include your out-of-network deductible and 40% coinsurance. In addition, when you get preventive care from an out-of-network provider, it’s not covered at 100% as it is when you see your designated in-network PCP.

To find in-network providers or check network status, use Provider Finder® or call a BCBSTX Personal Health Assistant toll-free at (800) 252-8039 (TTY: 711). You can also use the BCBSTX App to find in-network providers in your area — wherever you are.

Have a provider in mind who isn’t in our network yet? You can recommend them by filling out the Provider Nomination Form.
