Frequently Asked Questions ::

Here's the answer to your question: When do I need to submit an authorization?

If the member's benefit plan requires outpatient preauthorization, you will need to complete and submit an authorization prior to seeing the member. Some benefit plans and state laws require authorization only if you will continue treatment after a specific number of sessions. For specific contract requirements, or where such laws exist, you will need to contact a Magellan associate or the member's health plan at the phone number on the member's benefit identification card.
