Prior Authorization

“Prior Authorization” is a term used for select services (e.g., homecare services), items (e.g., Durable Medical Equipment purchases over $500) and prescriptions for some injectable or infusion drugs (e.g., Botox, Soliris, OxyContin) that must be pre-approved by Health Partners Plans. Prior Authorizations are sometimes referred to as “preauthorizations” or “precertifications” – they mean the same thing.

Note: Health Partners Plans requires prior authorizations for select services performed in an outpatient setting, including those performed in the office, short procedure units, ambulatory surgery centers, clinics, and hospital outpatient departments.
