New vendor managing Medicare Advantage patient transfers to post-acute care facilities, starting June 1

Starting June 1, 2019, our new vendor, naviHealth, will manage authorizations for Medicare Plus BlueSM PPO and BCN AdvantageSM members who require a transfer from an acute inpatient facility to a skilled nursing, long-term acute care or inpatient rehabilitation facility. naviHealth will be reviewing both in- and out-of-state post-acute care cases.

Look for upcoming articles in The Record and BCN Provider News on training opportunities and how to submit naviHealth requests.
