Our 360-degree Prior Authorization/Pre-Cert Approach
The initial step should be one your staff already takes daily. Start by entering the appropriate patient information along with diagnosis and fee codes into our online PA/Pre-Cert authorization request form. This shouldn’t bring about any major shifts in processes since your intake staff already collect and record all the pertinent information for each patient. This will start the precert process, and one of our knowledgeable staff will take over managing the process from start to finish. If the patient’s insurance provider needs additional information or needs to speak with a physician at your practice, we’ll be sure to keep you informed to keep the process moving forward.
Once approval is acquired, we’ll complete any action items and handle the required data entry. If the request isn’t approved, we’ll handle the follow-up and appeals.
