Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance Provider Update...

Effective Date resized 600

Recently, many regional Blue Cross Blue Shield plans had implemented various restrictions, delayed payments, reduced coverages and made burdensome requests for additional documentation for our nutritional testing.

We are pleased to announce that we have successfully resolved the various coverage and reimbursement issues, and we can once again extend our "Preferred Payment" option for micronutrient testing to Blue Cross Blue Shield patients in most states. Due to policy restrictions, patients drawn in the states of TX, IL, NM, OK, SC and TN will remain ineligible for "Preferred Payment".

As in the past, there is no change to our insurance payment policy for advanced cardiovascular testing which includes the state-of-the-art Lipoprotein Particle Profile™ (LPP™). Blue Cross Blue Shield patients IN ALL STATES are eligible for our "Preferred Payment" option for LPP™.

We thank you for your patience and continued loyalty while we worked to resolve the various insurance issues.

Please contact your local representative or call our corporate office at (800) 227-5227 if you have any additional questions.
