Apply for a Provider Number
Providers numbers issued by BCBSNC are necessary to file claims for services provided to BCBSNC members. To receive payments made to the provider’s office, providers must have a provider number, must be credentialed and have a contract with BCBSNC. If a provider does not have a contract with BCBSNC, payments are made to the subscriber. Provider numbers can be obtained for individuals or for a group practice.
To apply for a provider number, please provide the following information:
Completed application for an individual or group practice
Completed Taxpayer Identification Number (W-9) form
Send completed application and Taxpayer Identification Number (W-9) form to the appropriate Network Management Field Office.
Participation in BCBSNC Networks
Completion of an application and receipt of a provider number does not authorize participation in BCBSNC networks. Providers must be credentialed and have an executed contract in order to be considered a participating provider. Please review our information on how to apply for credentialing.
Please note: Effective January 1, 2016, Physical Therapy, Mental Health, Non-MD and Non-PhD provider networks are closed in some NC counties. See the list of closed counties.
