BCBS Insurance Benefits Update

In March, Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) sent letters to many UNT System faculty and staff members stating that their Primary Care Physician (PCP) would no longer be in network as of March 31, 2018. 

We are happy to announce that negotiations between BCBS and Texas Health, the largest health insurer in Texas, ended positively and Texas Health will remain in-network with the insurance carrier. 

Please note, if you look at your online BCBS portal now, it may take time for your doctor to show as in-network while BCBS adds the estimated 2,000 physicians back into their system as network providers. BCBS recommends that you always confirm that a provider is in the network before you receive care. 

Going forward, Blue Cross Blue Shield will continue to be the insurance provider for UNT System for the 2018-2019 academic year. Annual enrollment for the BCBS plan and other coverage options will be available during the following times:

  • UNT: July 2-July 14
  • UNT Dallas, UNT HSC, and UNT System: July 9-July 21

More information regarding annual enrollment is forthcoming. If you have additional benefit questions, please email hrbenefits@untsystem.edu or call 817-735-7650 (option 2).
