New and Updated Medical Policies

Effective September 1, 2018, BCBSWY has updated, and added new medical policies. These updated policies will offer clarification to authorization requests or claims denials and are necessary to support our new claims processing system. You can access our updated medical policies through the BCBSWY Availity payer space or by clicking here.

For the time being, updated policies will be available to view in THOR. In the near future, medical policies will be available through Availity or in an easy-to-search format.
