Policy Changes

Terminology Change to Precertification
BCBSND has made a terminology change to use "precertification" for terms previously referred to as prior approval, prior authorization, preauthorization, etc. This change aligns with our new core system. You may continue to see references to the current terminology throughout the transition.
