Availity: Eligibility & Benefit Search Enhancement

You asked and we listened! Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) is excited to announce a new patient search option within the Availity Eligibility & Benefits tool. Providers can now search by patient first name, last name and date of birth, without needing the member’s identification number.

To access the new functionality:

  • In Availity and under the drop down for Patient Registration, choose Eligibility and Benefits Inquiry.
  • Once there, you will find the new search option under the Patient Search Option drop down.
