Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City Implementation Resources
eviCore healthcare is excited to partner with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC) to provide authorization services for outpatient elective services.
Effective 3/1/23 all Radiology and Cardiology requests for BCBS-KC members must be initiated through eviCore on the CareCore National portal. After logging into your eviCore web account, if you are in the MedSolutions portal, you can select the CareCore National portal at the top of your screen and then initiate your request. Users can continue to use the MedSolutions portal through 2/28/23.
