BCBS of NC Changes Insurance Criteria

Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina Changes Insurance Criteria for Weight Loss Surgery

 

For those of you who have a Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC policy, as of 4:30 pm Tuesday, July 15,  your pre-op requirements may have changed. The new policy no longer requires six months of weight management counseling with a primary care physician, nutritionist, or other medical professionals. Please call the number on the back of your insurance card or ask you Human Resources Department if this change applies to your policy. 

Our office will contact patients and will submit to insurance in an orderly and timely manner.  Please make sure you have completed all other pre-op testing requirements prior to contacting your case manager.
