Interested in becoming a medical nutritional therapy provider?

To better serve our members, BCBSNC will begin providing coverage for medical nutritional therapy to eligible members enrolled in one of our Member Health PartnershipsSM programs.1

We are expanding our provider network to include credentialed licensed dietitian nutritionists and would like to invite registered dieticians to apply for credentialing.

BCBSNC will begin contracting directly with licensed registered dieticians nutritionists in the second quarter of 2005. As members of the network, dieticians will be assigned a provider number and may submit claims for medical nutrition therapy services delivered to eligible BCBSNC members. Initially, coverage will apply to services related to diabetes.

Credentialing information and forms

Credentialing may take up to 60 days to complete after BCBSNC receives your complete application package. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully, as the review process cannot begin until all requested information is received.

Thank you for considering participation in the BCBSNC provider network.

We look forward to working with you.

1 New coverage for medical nutrition therapy will be effective at employer good renewal, October 1, 2005, and applies only to BlueCareSM and Blue OptionsSM plans.
