Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

BCBS prefixes, typically the first three characters of a member ID, help route claims and electronic inquiries efficiently and can indicate specific network and benefit plan information.

The format of a typical BCBS prefix consists of three-character alpha combinations, which can include letters and numbers (e.g., P9H, 99D, Y4M, Z9P). These prefixes are used for efficient routing of claims and inquiries, and they may convey specific network and benefit plan details.

BCBS prefixes, like "alpha prefixes," are structured three-letter codes used for efficient claim routing and regional identification within their network. In contrast, other insurance providers employ less standardized numeric or alphanumeric identifiers that vary widely in format and purpose, lacking BCBS's level of systematization and specificity.

If your BCBS prefix is not recognized, contact your BCBS company directly to verify your member ID and get the correct prefix.

To be a BCBS participating provider (PAR), one must have a valid medical license, appropriate insurance, commit to BCBS standards and regulations, and agree to the negotiated payment rates for services rendered to BCBS members.
