This includes prior authorization and concurrent review, including discharge planning, for all post-acute levels of care:

  • Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs)
  • Acute inpatient rehab (AIR)
  • Long-term acute care (LTAC)

Impacted plans

Plans affected by this change include:

  • Tennessee Dual Complete® ONE (FIDE)
  • District of Columbia Dual Choice® (HIDE and FIDE)
  • New Jersey Dual Complete® ONE (FIDE)
  • Virginia Dual Complete® ONE (FIDE)

Any other state plans not specifically included above are not affected.
