PA Dynamic Rendering
All providers must be enrolled and credentialed by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama and practice in an acceptable, professional location that ensures confidentiality of procedures and minimal risk to members.
Important Information Regarding Your Tax Identification Number
As a new provider, you should be aware of the Transparency in Coverage Final Rule that involves publishing tax identification numbers for our providers in files that will be placed on a publicly accessible website effective January 1, 2022.
We have seen providers use their Social Security numbers as their tax identification numbers. If you do not want your Social Security number to be publicized, we recommend that you do not use your Social Security number as your tax identification number.
What Type of Provider Are You?
- An individual practitioner in Alabama and/or a contiguous county
For individual practitioners, we have partnered with CAQH®, an independent company that provides healthcare administrative services, to provide online enrollment through CAQH ProView™.
- A business or facility provider (e.g., laboratory, durable medical equipment provider, home health provider, etc.)
Providers of service through a business, such as a home health or durable medical equipment, will enroll directly with us.
