Effective Nov. 1, 2015, BlueCross® BlueShield® of South Carolina and BlueChoice HealthPlan began using Avalon Healthcare Solutions to administer a comprehensive suite of laboratory benefit management services to promote patient access to affordable, high-quality health care. Avalon is an independent company that provides benefit management services on behalf of BlueCross and BlueChoice®.
To ensure the lowest cost to your patients, please send BlueCross and BlueChoice members’ testing to in-network laboratories only and remember to always check for preauthorization requirements on genetic testing, cytogenetic testing and molecular pathology codes. BlueCross and BlueChoice expect all providers to utilize in-network laboratory resources whenever possible.
Here is a list of the current BlueCross, BlueChoice and Avalon participating laboratory providers.
