New PA Process Webinar

Medicaid prior authorization requests will soon be submitted through the Medicaid HealthCare Provider Portal rather than the AFMC ReviewPoint portal. This change will include the following types of PA requests:

  • durable medical equipment
  • molecular pathology
  • extension of benefits
  • physician drug reviews
  • continued hospital stays
  • surgical procedures
  • assistant surgeon
  • targeted case management
  • personal care

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the HealthCare Provider Portal and be sure you are registered or added as a delegate by your administrator.
