New Strategic Provider System implementation May 2022
In May 2022, Empire BlueCross BlueShield HealthPlus (Empire) will replace the current data management system with the new and significantly improved Strategic Provider System (SPS). The SPS data portal will increase website data accuracy, transparency, and timeliness, creating an enhanced provider experience.
SPS offers robust support features that will improve the ability of Empire to match submitted claims, resulting in more accurate pricing and processing. The easy-to-use website will allow you to:
- Digitally submit demographic data to one location.
- Maintain, update, and verify demographic data using a single website.
- Receive clear on-screen alerts and guidance as you maintain your data.
- Obtain access to a simplified quick verification process that will allow you to complete required verifications online, eliminating the need to fax, email, or use separate online forms.
- Receive periodic reminders to help you keep your information current.
