Posted: 03/26/2024

Blue Cross Complete conducts prior authorization review for neuropsychological testing under the following conditions:

  • If it is part of the psychological evaluation for bariatric surgery.
  • If it is part of the psychological evaluation for transgender surgery.
  • To rule out a diagnosis related to organic brain syndrome. (ex. Memory loss and dementia.)
  • To rule out pseudo seizures.
  • Residents within the city of Flint, who have elevated lead serum levels.

If a case doesn’t meet the criteria noted above (including children under 21 years), providers are required to contact their local Pre-Paid Inpatient Health Plans.
