Starting Feb. 28, a new questionnaire will open in the e-referral system for the pediatric feeding program for BCN commercial members

Starting Feb. 28, 2021, a Pediatric feeding questionnaire will open in the e referral system for BCN commercial members who are 18 years of age or younger.

This questionnaire will open for procedure code S0317.

On this website, we'll add a preview questionnaire that shows the questions you'll need to answer in the Pediatric feeding questionnaire. To view the preview questionnaire, click BCN and then click Authorization Requirements & Criteria. Scroll down and look under the "Authorization criteria and preview questionnaires" heading.

For more information on pediatric feeding programs, see the article titled Update: BCN requires authorization for elective pediatric feeding programs (PDF) in the November-December 2020 issue of BCN Provider News.

As a reminder, we use our authorization criteria, our medical policies and your answers to the questionnaires in the e-referral system when making utilization management determinations on your authorization requests.
