The No Surprises Act (NSA) and Directory Validation process

Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) has enhanced our current semi-annual provider demographic survey in accordance with the No Surprises Act (NSA) mandate. Providers are asked to continue to review their provider directory information and validate or submit changes as they occur using the Directory Validation process in Availity Essential. By ensuring information is accurate and  updated, you help patients in their search for healthcare.

This process is completed through the North Dakota Payer Spaces using the “Directory Validation” tile under applications, in Availity Essentials.
