Fee schedules are a key component of your contractual relationship with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL). To help ensure you have this information quickly, BCBSIL is implementing a new online Fee Schedule viewer tool via the Availity Provider Portal for participating professional providers in our Preferred Provider Option (PPO) and Blue Choice PPOSM networks. Once it’s available, you may use this Availity offering to electronically request a range of up to 20 procedure codes and immediately receive the contracted price allowance for the patient services you perform.
You must be registered with Availity to use the new Fee Schedule tool. You can sign up today via Availity , at no charge. For registration help, call Availity Client Services at 800-282-4548. If you don’t have online access, you may continue to fax and/or mail your requests using the Fee Schedule Request forms on the Forms page of our website.
BCBSIL will be hosting complimentary webinars for you to learn how to use the new Availity Fee Schedule tool. Check the Webinars and Workshops page for upcoming webinar training dates and times.

Watch the News and Updates page for more information. We’ll also be adding a new Fee Schedule Tool User Guide that we’ll add to the Provider Tools section. If you have questions, contact our Provider Education Consultants.
