Pre-Auth Needed?

DISCLAIMER: All attempts are made to provide the most current information on the Pre-Auth Needed Tool. However, this does NOT guarantee payment. Payment of claims is dependent on eligibility, covered benefits, provider contracts, correct coding and billing practices. For specific details, please refer to the provider manual. If you are uncertain that prior authorization is needed, please submit a request for an accurate response.

Note: It is the responsibility of the facility, in coordination with the rendering practitioner, to ensure that an authorization has been obtained for all inpatient and selected outpatient services, except for emergency stabilization services. All inpatient admissions require prior authorization. To determine if a specific outpatient service requires prior authorization, utilize the Pre-Auth Needed tool below by answering a series of questions regarding the Type of Service and then entering a specific CPT code.

Any anesthesiology, pathology, radiology or hospitalist services related to a procedure or hospital stay requiring a prior authorization will be considered downstream and will not require a separate prior authorization.
