New Lactation Consultation Designation added to Demographic Change Form

Posted September 7, 2018

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) has implemented a new designation on Provider Finder® called Lactation Consultation. The Lactation Consultation designation can be used for network providers who provide lactation support services to members (including counseling, education, and breastfeeding equipment and supplies) during the antenatal, perinatal and the postpartum period. This type of service is often provided by obstetrician-gynecologists, pediatricians, certified nurse midwives, certified nurse practitioners, certified nurse specialists and other providers acting within the scope of their license.

If you provide this service and would like to have the Lactation Consultant designation added to your profile in Provider Finder, check “Yes” to the “Provider Lactation Services” question on the Demographic Change Form on the Information Change Request page.

You may also use the Demographic Change Form to update your location, phone number, email or other important details on file with BCBSIL.

If you have any questions, or if you need additional information, contact your BCBSIL Provider Network Consultant (PNC).
