  • Registration takes between 1-5 business days.

I am already registered with NaviNet. Do I have access to BCBSNE information? 

If you are an existing NaviNet user, and are either a participating BCBSNE network provider, or are a healthcare provider within the state of Nebraska, you should see Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska as an option in your Health Plans List. If you are a non-participating provider, your office must be loaded on the BCBSNE provider file.

Our office outsources our billing and payment to a third-party billing service. Can a billing service register with NaviNet?

Yes, but for security, the registration process will include validation and authentication with the provider office before access is permitted.

Who should I contact if I experience any difficulties using NaviNet?

Claim Support:

The preferred way to submit claims is through the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). Claims can be submitted through your preferred clearinghouse as long as you are a BCBSNE-credentialed provider.  If you do not already have a clearinghouse, BCBSNE offers free billing software and support to help you submit claims electronically.

Note: Corrected or replacement claims must be filed electronically. Corrected claims submitted on paper by a provider with electronic claim filing capabilities will be returned with instructions to submit the corrected claim electronically. If your corrected claim includes attachments, your corrected paper claim must be filed to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska, attached to a Reconsideration Request Form, as you have done in the past. If you have any questions regarding how to submit a replacement claim electronically, please refer to the HIPAA ANSI X12N 837P or HIPAA ANSI X12N837I implementation guide for detailed instructions.
