With a single click you'll be able to locate primary care, urgent care, and behavioral health providers. You can search providers by name, by specialty, by location, and other criteria. Regence.com also lets you order/print ID cards and estimate costs. To register, you'll need to provide an email address, mobile number, and the ID number from your Regence/Carpenters Trusts card (starting with W9C).
    • Use the Regence app – The app takes the guesswork out of finding a doctor, hospital or clinic in your plan’s network. Read provider reviews and check specialty information to guide your choices. Plus, you can view your member ID card in the app and store in your iPhone to access any time. Download on the App Store or get it on Google Play.
    • Search National Doctor & Hospital Finder – Regence is a member of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, a coalition of independent companies who negotiate discounts with healthcare providers on a regional basis. These regional companies cooperate with one another to form a nationwide provider network known as BlueCard. When you live or travel outside the Regence service area, your Regence/Carpenters Trusts ID card qualifies for the discounted rates negotiated by the BCBS company for the region in which you receive medical care. Ninety-five percent of doctors and hospitals are contracted with a Blue Cross or Blue Shield company. To search the national network visit www.bcbs.com or call (800) 810-BLUE (2583). For covered services, you won’t be responsible for any amount above these negotiated rates and any out-of-pocket expenses you’d normally pay. Plus, you won’t need to complete any claim forms.
