Faster Provider Portal Access through HEATLHeNET 

Date:
April 24, 2020

To: All Providers

We are now offering single sign-in access to secure content on our provider website through the HEALTHeNET Community Portal. This means you can log in once at HEALTHeNET and won’t need to log in again to view important content at bcbswny.com/provider.

BlueCross BlueShield is currently the only insurance payer with this functionality on the HEALTHeNET portal site.

What You Should Know

  • HEALTHeNET users will now see a BlueCross BlueShield badge on the Community Portal
  • This badge will directly log you into the BlueCross BlueShield provider website
  • You will still be able to log in to our website through bcbswny.com/provider using your HEALTHeNET credentials

Registering for HEALTHeNET

If you are not yet registered for HEATLHeNET, click here to register. Once on the homepage, you can click on the “Request Form” link on the page to fill out the form. A HEALTHeNET representative will contact you within 48 hours with further instructions.

HEALTHeNET is an efficient resource your office can use to verify patient eligibility and view patient benefits. You can also flag and resolve benefits issues before a patient visit, and check for eligibility in out-of-area Blues plans.

If you have any questions or issues, you can contact the HEALTHeNET Help Desk at 1-887-895-4724.
