On June 15, 2018, the direct login link to the Empire BlueCross BlueShield (“Empire”) Facility and Professional secure web portals will be removed from the Empire provider public web page.  Your only access to the secure portal will be through the Availity Portal.

  1. Empire Facility Health Plan User ID (assigned by your Empire Super User).
  2. Unique Availity user ID & password (assigned by your Availity administrator).
  3. Registered as a user for Empire Services Registration on Availity.
