Update to our Radiation Therapy Preauthorization Process

August 20, 2019

To: Oncologists, Radiologists, Radiation Oncologists

Contracts affected: Commercial and Medicare Advantage

We’ve expanded our relationship with National Imaging Associates, Magellan Healthcare (NIA) to help streamline the preauthorization process for Radiation Therapy.

Beginning November 1, 2019, preauthorization requests for all types of cancer will now be submitted through NIA’s RadMD website or by calling 1-800-642-7820.

After this date, any requests that were previously submitted to us for your BlueShield of Northeastern New York Commercial and Medicare Advantage patients, should be directed to NIA.

Requests for your patients covered by administrative services only (ASO) plans will continue to be submitted by fax using our preauthorization form

If you have any questions, please contact Provider Service at 1-800-444-4552 or (518) 220-5620.
