Organization Determinations and Appeals for Medical Benefits
For your safety, prior authorization, or precertification, is required for certain medical services. That means your provider will need to ask your health plan first whether it will pay for that medical service. If you’d like to receive a medical service but aren’t sure if your plan will pay for it, call us or check your Evidence of Coverage.
If you disagree with us on a claim we denied, we’ll take a second look at it.
Coverage Determinations and Appeals for Prescription Drugs
Need a drug that your health plan doesn’t pay for? Need an exception to prior authorizations, quantity limits, step therapy or drug tiers? You or the doctor who prescribed the medication can ask us to make an exception.
