Empire BlueCross BlueShield (“Empire”) is committed to continuous improvement to meet the ever-changing needs of the health care industry.  To move toward standardization of contract language as the result of a recent move to a new contract management system, you may receive an updated Participating Provider Agreement later this month if your individual participation with Empire began prior to January 1, 2016.


What is the impact of this change?

Please note there are no changes to billing procedures, reimbursements, lines of business or networks that you currently participate in as a network provider. In addition, the new Agreement does not alter your original effective date of participation, but it does replace your old participating provider agreement with us.


What do I need to do?

In order for your participation in our network to continue unaffected, please review, sign and return the signature page(s) along with the lobbying and disclosure statements (if applicable) to Empire via email at recontracting@empireblue.com.


If you are unable to return via the preferred method above, please either fax or mail to the addresses below
