Real-time Processing for Out-of-area Electronic Claims

October 9, 2012

BlueCard®, the national program that enables members of one Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) Plan to obtain health care services while traveling or living in another BCBS Plan’s service area, just got better.

Beginning Oct. 15, 2012,
all BlueCard claims submitted to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma (BCBSOK) will be processed and transmitted in real time between BCBS Plans. This enhancement will help improve processing across the Blues system by decreasing overall claim cycle times and improving the payment timeframe.
