Genetics Prior Authorization Program update for commercial and Community plan members

Last modified: June 30, 2021

To help with the transition from Beacon to UnitedHealthcare, administrative penalties for failing to comply with the prior authorization or notification requirement for any genetic test with a date of service in the months of June and July will be waived. 

We will reprocess any claims impacted, and they will not need to be resubmitted. Waiver in effect for commercial and Community Plan members.
