Update: eviCore®OB Ultrasound Submission Process

Feb. 7, 2020

eviCore healthcare (eviCore) is offering provider orientation training sessions on its improved process for submitting OB Ultrasound episodic prior authorizations. eviCore is an independent specialty medical benefits management company that provides utilization management for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas.

What has changed?
eviCore will provide a single contact for our members and providers per pregnancy. You can request multiple CPT codes and/or multiple units for each pregnancy. You can contact eviCore if something changes during the pregnancy.

Training opportunities
eviCore is offering orientation sessions to help you and your staff with the new process. During these sessions, you will learn how to navigate the eviCore website and how to submit prior authorization requests for OB Ultrasounds. A question-and-answer session will follow the training.

Registration is required. The training is free and will last about one hour.

Note: On the eviCore training website all sessions are listed in Eastern time (ET).
