If you are enrolled in HealthSelect of Texas and your follow-up appointment is with your PCP, you do not need a referral (referrals are not required for PCP visits).
However, if your PCP sends you to a specialist for follow-up care, your PCP will need to submit a referral to BCBSTX before you see the specialist. If you do not have a referral on file beforehand, you will pay more, because your visit will be considered out-of-network, even if the specialist is in the HealthSelect of Texas network.
You can log into BAM at www.healthselectoftexas.com
or by calling a BCBSTX PHA toll-free at (800)252-8039 to see if your referral is on file with BCBSTX.
HealthSelect Out-of-State, HealthSelect Secondary, and Consumer Directed HealthSelect plans do not require referrals.
If you still have questions about the mobile breast cancer screening program in collaboration with MD Anderson, please contact a BCBSTX PHA toll-free at (800) 252-8039.
