How to participate

The Medical Oncology Program is administered by Carelon Medical Benefits Management on behalf of Tyson Foods employee health plan administered by BlueAdvantage. The first step in participating is to register as a user of the Carelonprovider portal. The provider portal allows you to initiate the review of cancer treatment regimens for your patients*. We call this the “order request” process.

From the provider portal you can:

  • Initiate, update, and submit new order requests
  • Identify Carelon Cancer Treatment Pathways
  • Retrieve your order summaries

When your practice initiates an order request using the provider portal, the order is evaluated for alignment with Carelon Cancer Treatment Pathways and plan medical policy. A regimen that meets clinical criteria is approved in real time, and when your practice selects a designated Carelon Cancer Treatment Pathways, you may be eligible for enhanced reimbursement**.
