    Review the contract the Provider signed with the insurance. Most contracts state within a clause the the Provider agrees not to provide medical services to a family member. BlueCross is one contract that still states this to my provider.

    Default I agree

    I'm with Shaana on this. Check your contract(s). Good luck!
