I am interested in a job at BlueCross.
Please visit our careers page.
I am looking for subpoena or HIPAA-compliant information.
To request records from us:
- To request records from us, we need either a valid South Carolina or federal court subpoena or HIPAA-compliant authorization form. We do not provide records pursuant to an out-of-state subpoena, which is invalid in South Carolina. Please contact the Richland County Clerk of Court or a local South Carolina attorney for any questions concerning the issuance of a South Carolina subpoena for an out-of-state action. You can also use a HIPAA-compliant authorization form found on our website to request certain records.
Health records available in the normal course of business include:
- Claim form (the HCFA form completed by the provider for services rendered).
- Claim summary report (a summary of claims processed for a certain period of time, which generally provides line item information, diagnosis code and provider information).
- Explanation of Benefits (EOBs) (which provides information about the benefits we paid for a particular claim).
- We generally do not have copies of medical records. You should request these directly from your provider.
