Delay for Tennessee: Home health review process

Please be aware of a change to the prior authorization requirement announced in April for home health services for UnitedHealthcare® Medicare Advantage and Dual Special Needs Plans in Tennessee.  

The new process has been delayed and will NOT begin on July 1, 2022. We will notify you in advance of the implementation of the new home health prior authorization requirements and provide additional information about the process.  

When the requirements begin, both the initial authorization and concurrent review processes for home health services will be managed by naviHealth.
