A request for PA doesn’t guarantee payment. We can’t reimburse you for unauthorized services. Here’s the process for requesting PA:


  • Register for the Provider Portal if you haven’t already.

  • Verify member eligibility before providing services.
  • Complete and send the  PA request form (PDF) for all medical requests.

  • Attach supporting documents when you submit the form.

For details on the information and documents required to fill out a PA request form, you can refer to our PA request checklist (PDF).
