Blue Cross Complete’s National Imaging Associates Implementation Update
Beginning May 1, 2022, Blue Cross Complete (BCC) will require prior authorization from National Imaging Associates Inc., a subsidiary of Magellan Health, to manage the following non-emergency outpatient diagnostic imaging services under NIA’s Medical Specialty Solutions program:
- PET scan
- Myocardial perfusion imaging
- MUGA scan
Providers may begin contacting NIA on April 26, 2022, to seek prior authorization for procedures scheduled on or after May 1, 2022. Due to a temporary issue with the membership eligibility file, please be advised that authorizations from NIA may take longer than usual. BCC is working to resolve the issue before May 1st and they apologize for any inconvenience.
