Pre Certification  or Prior Authorization

A requirement that you obtain the insurance company's approval before a medical service is provided. If you fail to follow the pre-certification procedures the company may reduce or deny claim payment. Please note: getting pre-certification does not guarantee claim payment. Also called Utilization Review.

Prior authorization is a requirement that your physician obtain approval from your health plan to prescribe a specific medication for you. Without this prior approval, your health plan may not provide coverage, or pay for, your medication.
