RE: 2009 Authorization Grid – Effective 08/01/2009
The updated Clear Choice Health Plans, Inc. list of services requiring prior authorization is now posted online. This authorization grid is to be used for the Clear Choice Medicare Advantage (CCMA), Central Oregon Individual Health Solutions (COIHS), Clear Choice POS, Clear Choice PPO and Clear Choice ASO lines of business.
The searchable version of the authorization grid can be found online at our website, www.clearchoicehp.com. Click on the ‘Provider’ option and the ‘Authorization Grid’ search located below the Provider Welcome note.
Please note that the new prior authorization requirements go into effect August 1, 2009. This means the new grid and requirements will apply for services provided on or after August 1st.
For questions about the use of the prior authorization grid, or the online tool, please call Provider Relations at (541) 385-5315 or (888) 863-3637.
