Prior Authorizations

Prior authorization — prior approval for certain treatment and services — may be required before CCHP will cover them. Please refer to the Prior Authorization section of your Evidence of Coverage for a full list of covered services requiring prior authorization.

Steps to follow when prior authorization is required

  • Ask your health care provider to start the prior authorization process as soon as possible before the beginning of treatment. It’s always in your best interest to make sure there’s a prior authorization on file before you receive services.
  • Your provider can submit a Prior Authorization Request Form online in the provider portal.
  • Prior authorization is not required for emergency services.
