Use the Prior Authorization and Notification tool to check prior authorization requirements, submit new medical prior authorizations and inpatient admission notifications, check the status of a request, and submit case updates such as uploading required clinical documentation.
Determine if notification or prior authorization is required using just the procedure code and plan type, or based on a patient’s plan and detailed case information.
Submit a new request for medical prior authorization or to notify UnitedHealthcare of an inpatient admission.
Check the status or update a previously submitted request for prior authorization or notification using the reference number or member or provider information. You can also request a case be canceled without having to call.
Upload clinical notes or attach medical records and images to a request.
Provide pertinent clinical information as requested at the time of your initial submission, which may allow for quicker decisions and improved efficiency for online submissions.
