New Application Process for Joining Our Networks

September 19, 2018

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM), welcomes providers to apply to join our networks. We are making the process of applying for a BCBSNM provider record number and joining our networks even faster and easier. Effective October 12, 2018, instead of completing the paper Participating Provider Interest Form, prospective providers will be able to fill out our new electronic Provider Onboarding Form online. This change will streamline the application processes and lessen the amount of time it takes to get a response.

This Provider Onboarding Form will be used by BCBSNM to set up a provider record number and if indicated by the provider, request contracts for the networks they would like to participate in. Providers can locate the new electronic Provider Onboarding Form on the BCBSNM provider website under Network Participation/How to Join.

This form should be completed by:

  • Individual providers that would be new to our networks
  • Groups and clinics that would be new to our networks
  • Existing contracted groups or clinics who are adding a new provider

If you have any further questions, please contact your Provider Network Representative.
