HNS Policy 

 

BCBSNC only provides coverage for Nerve Conduction Studies and EMGs when performed by physicians who are Diplomates of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (DACNB).

 

This policy applies to out-of-state BCBS plans as well as in-state plans. 

 

In order to bill BCBSNC for nerve conduction studies and EMGs, your name must be included on the list of certified neurologists on the ACNB website, www.acnb.org. If your name is not included on the ACNB website, you cannot bill BCBS for these services. 

 

If you are not a DACNB, and nerve conduction studies/EMG’s are provided to members whose healthcare plans process through BCBSNC, these services must be treated as non-covered services and as such, require a waiver that is signed by the patient before such services are rendered.  Please remember all waivers for non-covered services must be maintained in the patient’s healthcare record.
