Steps for pre-authorization:
- If requested by a physician office to obtain a pre-authorization, Baylor will require the ordering physician to sign an acknowledgement that the third-party payor does not require the ordering physician to obtain pre-authorization.
- The physician’s office will be required to fax the patient’s insurance information, order and clinical history to the imaging services scheduling department, and Baylor will work to complete the pre-authorization.
- The physician office will be notified if additional information is needed and whether pre-authorization is obtained.
Baylor’s ability to pre-authorize will depend on the physician’s contract with the third-party payer. For example, Blue Cross Blue Shield, UnitedHealthcare and Unicare prohibit Baylor from obtaining pre-authorizations for imaging services. In addition, Med Solutions-related companies will only allow Baylor to obtain a partial pre-authorization.
