eviCore-Managed Procedures

Providers must obtain authorization from eviCore® healthcare for:

  • Outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy services (by therapists) for BCN commercial and BCN Advantage membersSM when delivered by independent physical therapists, outpatient therapy providers, physician practices and hospital-based outpatient therapy centers
  • Physical medicine services by chiropractors and by athletic trainers for BCN commercial members only
  • Select radiation oncology services for BCN commercial and BCN Advantage members

All BCN-participating freestanding diagnostic facilities, outpatient hospital settings, ambulatory surgery centers and physician offices that provide these services are required to submit prior authorization requests to eviCore healthcare.

When procedures reviewed by eviCore healthcare are performed in an observation, emergency or inpatient care setting, they don't require authorization.

Submit prior authorization requests to eviCore as follows:

  • For commercial members, Michigan’s prior authorization law* requires health care providers to submit prior authorization requests electronically. Alternate submission methods (phone) are allowed in the case of temporary technological problems, such as power or internet outages.
  • For Medicare Advantage members, submit requests using any of the methods below.
