Updating BCBSKS Directory: Telehealth Indicator
During these trying times, patients are seeking additional treatment options for their healthcare needs. BCBSKS claims data reflects an uptake in telehealth services. In an effort to better serve those in need and looking for options in care, BCBSKS will be identifying our providers in our directory as offering telehealth for those that have submitted telehealth claims. Providers that have submitted a telehealth claim in the last year will show as "offering telehealth services". BCBSKS understands that not all members will qualify clinically for telehealth services and may be better serviced through an in-person visit. We will look to our providers to make those decisions on a case-by-case basis.
Additionally, if you do not want to be listed as offering telehealth, please contact the provider network services to have the designation of "telehealth" removed from your provider profile.
BCBSKS values you as a contracting provider and appreciates the care you provide our members. Feel free to contact your professional relations representative should you have any questions.
