Need to request a precertification but don't know where to start? We've put together some information to better serve you when requesting precertification. Our goal is to make the precertification process fast, easy and accurate.
There are some services that routinely require precertification or admission certification for BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina. Other services require precertification due to the member's contract benefits, type of service, etc. To determine if a service may require precertification, review our Precertification Requirements.
Please note: While some groups require precertification for all of the services listed, others only require precertification for a portion of the outpatient services listed or none at all. Precertification requirements may vary from group to group or by health plan.
To access precertification/preauthorization and medical policy information for other Blue Plans, use the BlueCard Precertification tool. You will need the patient’s alpha prefix from his or her member ID card.
BlueCross requires the State Health Plan and fully insured groups to get precertification for certain advanced imaging services through National Imaging Associates (NIA). On behalf of BlueCross, NIA handles precertification for certain imaging services. NIA is an independent company. Review the Radiology Precertification information to learn more.
