Website Security, Confidentiality, and Registration
At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts, we respect our providers' and members' right to privacy. Taking steps to promote the security of personal and confidential information transmitted over the Internet is a very serious responsibility. We have given information security the highest of priorities for our web-based transactions with members, providers, and business partners. Personally identifiable information about our members, providers and business partners is not released without permission unless that release is required and in accordance with federal and state laws.
We have combined state-of-the-art technology with industry-best practices in order to provide security for transactions. And although the steps involved in accessing these functions may seem burdensome, we feel that when it comes to your personal information, it is better to use too much caution rather than not enough.
To ensure the utmost privacy, one person per office or facility registers as the primary user. That person is the main contact and has the administrative rights to add, edit, and remove information for others in the organization.
When you register with us, your information is stored in a secure server environment and is protected behind a firewall. The information that is transmitted back and forth is scrambled with the aid of encryption technology. Because of this, we require that your browser be capable of supporting 128-bit encryption. When you are accessing pages on bluecrossma.com, you can tell if you are in a secure area by looking for the "padlock" symbol at the bottom of your browser window.
For all visitors to bluecrossma.com/provider, some information is collected when you access the website. This information is not personally identifiable and is used only to help us improve the design of and access to the website. The collected information, such as the IP address, geographic location, and Internet Service Provider, is not used to solicit business or to provide addresses for direct marketing material.
As Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts continues to introduce new functionality to this website, including email capabilities, additional features will be introduced to further enhance privacy and security.
