Outpatient Facility Date Range Enhancement  

Outpatient facility authorizations now default to a 90-day span for the date of service. This will reduce case cancellations and the need to update dates of service for outpatient procedures. 

Prompts Added for Clinical Information

You will be prompted for clinical information when submitting a prior authorization request for certain services. Receiving this information with the initial submission will help us provide quicker decisions.

Go to the Prior Authorization and Notification page for all other resources, including reference guides, videos and training.

Add and View Comments

You can now add comments when submitting referrals for UnitedHealthcare Community Plan members. Any comments will be viewable when checking referral status. This capability already existed in referrals for Medicare members.
