Prior Authorization Requirements!
In an effort to streamline the process for prior authorization reviews, please review the list of requirements for the submission of initial authorization and reauthorization requests for non-radiology medical goods and services.
ICD-10 codes are being implemented for date of service beginning October 1, 2015 for prior authorizations. This affects the submission of ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes in the prior authorization portals per the table below:
Prior Authorization Portal
ICD-9 Codes Accepted Until (for dates of service prior to 10/1/15)
ICD-10 Codes Accepted Starting (for dates of service beginning 10/1/15)
CAREPortal – Radiology Authorizations
Clear Coverage – Medical Authorizations
CAREPortal gives providers the ability to submit prior-authorization requests for high-tech radiology procedures (MRI, MRA, CT, CTA, PET, PET/CT and Nuclear Cardiology) electronically over the internet.
