What documentation do I need to submit with my PA request?

Documentation to support medical necessity must be submitted with Prior Authorization requests. This information supports the need for the treatment and submitting detailed information on initial submission helps to ensure the request can be processed in a timely manner.

Examples of appropriate documents include:

  • Current history and/or physician examination notes that address the problem and need
    for services requested
  • Relevant lab and/or radiology results
  • Relevant specialty consultation notes
  • Other pertinent information to aid in decision making process

CHPW Utilization Management staff may request specific additional clinical information via fax or
telephonically to complete the authorization process.
