Data Validation Tool, New Sign-up & Authorization Pre-Check

Reminder: Data Validation Tool Instructions
BCBSWY updated our Directory Validation tool instructions on the Availity Portal. The instructions include directions for Providers to find NPI and tax ID combinations to help facilitate compliance with the No Surprises Act (NSA) provider directory validation requirements. The NSA requires you confirm this information with us every 90 days, so your information can continue to be listed in our public directory. Please see the updated guide here.

The BCBSWY Provider Update Newsletter is getting a makeover. Please sign up at to continue receiving these updates with a fresh new look. Please note: Only those who have signed up since December 1, 2021 will be carried forward.
