New process to find providers on bcbst.com

Our website is the quickest way for your employees to find information on network providers. Recent upgrades have made the process easier. Employees should:

  • Have their ID card handy.
  • Go to bcbst.com.
  • Locate Find a Doctor on the opening page. Click on Begin Your Search.
  • Update current location by Zip Code or City and State. Enter location before doing anything else.
  • Click on the category needed, such as Doctor/Medical Professional, Hospital/Facility, Pharmacy or Other Services.
  • Follow the instructions to select exactly what is needed, such as find a provider by name, network and specialty or even compare providers.
  • Enter City and State or Zip code. Employee should select how many miles they would be willing to travel to find the kind of provider needed.
  • Enter information from ID card. If the ID card isn’t available, check the box and select network, identified online as CVTN/Network V.
  • Select Get Results. A list will be displayed. Not all specialists are near every location, so the employee may have to go back and expand the number of miles they are willing to travel in order to find the type of provider needed.

For additional provider search functions, employees can register for BlueAccessSM, the secure area of bcbst.com. BlueAccess lets members view information like provider cost and quality in a secure environment but with online speed and convenience.  Members can Login or register for BlueAccess at bcbst.com/blueaccess.
