We're continuing extended prior authorizations for elective procedures delayed due to COVID-19
Considering the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in the communities we serve, we’re continuing our prior authorization extension for elective procedures which meet the following criteria:
- We approved the prior authorization
- The elective procedure was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic
- The member has continuous enrollment in their plan at the time of service
It’s important to note that if a member switches to a different plan before the elective procedure, the provider must request prior authorization again.
