Blue Advantage Medical Policies

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama Blue Advantage medical policies are based on the most current medical research available at the time of the policy development. On this site we offer our completed medical polices and draft medical polices. The draft policies are available for physician comment for 45-days from the posting date found on the document. We encourage practicing physicians to provide input.

Policies are written to cover a given condition for the majority of people. Each individual's unique clinical circumstances may be considered in light of current scientific literature. Medical policies are based on constantly changing medical science and Blue Cross reserves the right to review and update our policies as necessary.
