Prior Authorization

Certain types of care require “prior authorization” or approval. This helps us to keep quality high and costs low and forces doctors and nurses to talk better to each other about the care you receive.

  • Save money on specialist copays by getting a referral from your primary care provider
    (PCP). When your PCP calls us BEFORE your specialist visit, your copay gets lowered by HALF.
  • Have your doctor call us before you get certain types of outpatient care or have an inpatient stay.
Call us to get a lower co-pay, and/or find out what needs prior authorization.
