We require prior authorization on all out-of-network referrals. The request is generally processed like any other authorization request. The nurse reviews the request for medical necessity and/or service. If the case does not meet criteria, the nurse routes the case to the Medical Director for review and determination. Out-of-network referrals are generally approved for, but not limited, to the following circumstances:

  • Continuity of care issues
  • Necessary services are not available within network.

Out-of-network referrals are monitored on an individual basis. Trends related to individual physicians or geographical locations are reported to Network Management for review.

To find out if a prior authorization request has been approved, check with your provider or call member services, at 1-877-542-8997 (TTY: 711). If the prior authorization request is denied, you will be notified in writing, including your right to appeal this decision.

We have a Member Advisory Council and it gives members a chance to share their thoughts and ideas with us. The council members will be able to provide feedback on the way we deliver services, discuss any concerns, and hear about upcoming programs. A parent, foster parent or guardian of a member may also participate.
