How to Obtain an Authorization

Registered providers may log in, click the Authorizations tab, then select Authorization Request. 

Please supply your phone and fax numbers. You can attach up to 10 clinical files, and also add relevant clinical information by typing it into the text box. Your requests may not be visible in the Provider Portal inquiry until a final disposition has been determined. As a result, you may receive our fax response prior to seeing the determination online. 

You may also contact the Prior Authorization Department seven days per week, 24 hours per day: 

  • To obtain medical and behavioral health authorizations, call 1-800-322-6027.
