Out of State Blue Cross Blue Shield Plans – Reminder on Eligibility/Benefits

Issue: #407 MAR2019

Topic: Education


With the start of a new year, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) would like to remind providers to call the number on the back of the member’s card to check eligibility/benefits and determine if a precertification is needed when working with members from other Blue Cross Blue Shield Plans. Other Blue Cross Blue Shield Plans may have programs in place requiring providers to seek precertification through vendors (i.e. AIM). By calling to check eligibility/benefits, providers will be informed of any potential requirements.
