The Utilization Management team manages authorization requests made on behalf of our members. This includes medical, surgical, mental health and addiction medicine requests for inpatient, rehabilitation, DME and other specialty services requiring an authorization for the plan.
Services or items requiring an authorization are identified in the plan documents and can be viewed through the List of Services link below. Authorizations are processed as standard (14 business days) or expedited (72 hours from receipt of request).
