Prior Authorization Requests

Effective April 1, 2013, the Medical Authorization Unit (MAU) will no longer pend for additional documentation to providers submitting incomplete/incorrect prior authorization requests (PARs). All incomplete/incorrect PARs will be cancelled and the provider will be required to submit a new PAR. The 30-day-retro rule will remain in effect for all PARs submitted to the MAU. For all PAR-related questions, please call the OHCA Call Tree at (800)522-0114.
