BabyNet Implementation News for Members
Starting October 1, 2019, Healthy Blue will take over the educational review and payment responsibility for BabyNet services. BabyNet is South Carolina’s early intervention system for infants and toddlers through 3 years old with:
- Developmental delays
- Conditions associated with developmental delays
Healthy Blue will honor any Intensive Family Service Plan (IFSP) in place before October 1, 2019 through the Coordination of Care period, which ends on December 31, 2019.
What does this mean for you? You don’t need an authorization during the Coordination of Care period for services with your current BabyNet provider. But, after December 31, 2019, if your provider isn’t a Healthy Blue participating provider, they will need to enroll with us to become one. Or, you may need to switch to a provider that offers BabyNet services that is in the Healthy Blue network.
If you have any questions about how this will impact you, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-866-781-5094 (TTY 1-866-773-9634). You can reach us Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
