Medicare Prior Authorization
All attempts are made to provide the most current information on the Pre-Auth Needed Tool. However, this does NOT guarantee payment. Payment of claims is dependent upon eligibility covered benefits, Provider contracts and correct coding and billing practices. For specific details, please refer to the Superior HealthPlan Medicare Advantage Provider Manual. If you are uncertain that prior authorization is needed, please submit a request for an accurate response.
