Yes, it should be able to handle this "automatically." If you use the ParticleHP processes in your physics list, then you should get results extracted from the nuclear data tables. If you set up your physics list with just the ion-ion cascade models (BIC or INCL++), then you will get probabilistic results with more continuous distributions. They'll be kinematically correct, but won't reflect details of internal nuclear structure which are likely important near threshold.
