Preparation for the Rollout of the New Predictal Precertification Tool

Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) will be going live with the new precertification tool called Predictal this Fall. This tool was initially announced in our Quarterly Provider Insights specifically designed to provide you with a faster pathway to submitting precertification request(s) through the Availity Essentials provider portal. 

Predictal will integrate with Availity Essentials, enabling you to optimize the efficiency of your precertification submissions and reduce administrative burdens. To ensure you leverage the tool to its full capabilities when we go live this fall, we encourage you to connect with your system’s facility administrator to ensure you have access to Availity Essentials if you don’t have access today. More information on Availity Essentials functionality, registration, training tips and resources, can be found on our BCBSND Availity Essentials resource webpage.  

Watch our Healthcare News Weekly for more information on the new Predictal tool coming soon.
