Authorization requirements

Is authorization required? How do I get authorization?

Yes

Complete the preauthorization form.
    Note: Completing this form creates a high priority work item for the claim manager and gives them information they need to act on your request.

Or, contact the claims manager:
By phone: To get the claims manager’s phone number, call the Claim Information line (800-831-5227)

By secure email: If you are the attending physician, IME, or concurrent care provider, log into to the Claims & Account Center (CAC)
