Submitting Electronic Claims for Blue Cross Community CentennialSM Members

August 2, 2017

Our May 2017 Blue Review edition announced the implementation of payer ID MC721, which took effect May 20, 2017, for Blue Cross Community Centennial claims submitted electronically. Blue Cross Community Centennial members are identified by alpha-prefix YIF listed on their Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) identification card.

Health care providers who utilize a clearinghouse or practice management system vendor for electronic claim submissions are encouraged to share this new payer ID with their vendors to ensure Blue Cross Community Centennial claims are processed efficiently. If these claims are submitted via direct data entry through the AvailityTM Web portal, providers should utilize the dropdown payer option of "Blue Cross Community Centennial."
