No Surprises Act (NSA) Directory Validation Reminder

Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) is reminding providers of their directory validation process to comply with the No Surprises Act (NSA) mandate. Instead of mailing providers’ directory information this fall, as done in the past, they ask providers to verify or submit changes in Availity Essentials using the directory validation process before year end.

The directory validation process remains important as it ensures the BCBSND directory reflects accurate information. By ensuring information is accurate and updated, you help patients in their search for health care.  

Where to begin:
Follow these instructions to complete the directory validation process.
