eviCore Preauthorization Training – MSK Services and OB Ultrasound

Posted April 1, 2019

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) is working with eviCore healthcare (eviCore), an independent specialty medical benefits management company, to offer provider orientation sessions. This web-based training will help you navigate the eviCore website and submit requests for preauthorization of musculoskeletal (MSK) services and obstetric ultrasounds (OBUS).

Even simple errors can lead to a denial. Submitting requests online reduces the chance of error. Learn how to properly submit requests for physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), speech therapy (ST), joint and spine surgery, pain management and OBUS services by enrolling in the appropriate training sessions below. This is your chance to have your eviCore questions answered by the experts. 

In the training, you will learn how to electronically submit preauthorization requests through eviCore. You’ll also learn how to access and locate required information from the eviCore website and what clinical documentation you need for the top requested services. Each training session is approximately one hour. Registration is required. There is no cost for the training.
