Enteral nutrition questionnaire updated in the e-referral system
On July 11, 2021, we updated the Enteral nutrition questionnaire in the e-referral system.
For questionnaires submitted on or after July 11, 2021, approved authorization requests are valid for six months. (For questionnaires submitted on or before July 10, approved authorization requests were valid for three months.)
We also updated the corresponding preview questionnaire on this website.
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.
You can access preview questionnaires on this website. They show the questions you'll need to answer in the actual questionnaires that open in the e-referral system. This can help you prepare your answers ahead of time.
To find the preview questionnaires, click BCN and then click Authorization Requirements & Criteria. Scroll down and look under the "Authorization criteria and preview questionnaires" heading.
Authorization criteria and medical policies
The pertinent authorization criteria and medical policies are also available on the Authorization Requirements & Criteria page.
