November 6, 2019 update:
We've updated this news article to clarify our referral requirements. Please see below for referral information.
We’re pleased to announce that we’re simplifying our coverage for nutrition counseling starting on January 1, 2020. We will no longer require an authorization for these services; however, services should still be medically necessary.
Note: Because of this change, we’ll remove the Medical Nutrition Therapy Authorization Extension form from Provider Central as of January 1, 2020.
For questions about this change, please contact your network representative at 1-800-316-BLUE (2583).
