November 30, 2020

The last date of service for the Physical Medicine Utilization Management (PMUM) prior authorization program for Indian Prairie School District (IPSD) group members is Dec. 31, 2020. Effective for dates of service on or after Jan. 1, 2021, prior authorization through OrthoNetTM will no longer be required for chiropractic services for members with IPSD group numbers OMC644, OMC645, P20174 or P40339.

Don’t forget: Always check eligibility and benefits first for all Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) members prior to rendering services. This step will help you confirm prior authorization requirements and utilization management vendors, if applicable. If you have any questions on benefits, refer to the member’s ID card for the appropriate contact information.
