The BlueCross BlueShield website includes a search feature for users to find providers who accept BlueCross insurance. This national database of BlueCross doctors is accessible to members. Users must enter the first three letters of their membership number or the network they are registered on. The search can then be performed by entering the name of the doctor, the specialty, the procedures performed and other variables. Members can enter their location and also specify the radius in miles to filter search results, states BCBS.

The website also has advanced search options that allow members to search for BCBS providers based on patient ratings varying from one to five stars. Users can select providers based on recognitions like Blue Physician Recognitions, quality-based recognitions and board certifications. Search options also include extended hours, new patient acceptance and affiliations. Members can search for providers based on gender and languages spoken, reports BCBS.

It is also possible for members to seek urgent care and make an informed choice based on symptoms, cost and convenience, explains BlueCross BlueShield. Users can locate health care providers outside the United States and also shop for health insurance on the website, according to BCBS.
