We are updating specific authorization requirements for Medicare.For dates of service on or after December 15, 2018, we are requiring our providers to obtain authorization for the two medications listed below. At this time, no other changes to WellCare’s authorization rules are changing.
On December 15, 2018, www.wellcare.com/auth_lookup will be updated to reflect these changes. Prior authorization requirements are subject to periodic changes. You should always use our website’s authorization page to determine whether a procedure code requires prior authorization, and always check eligibility and confirm benefits before rendering services to members. Failure to do so may result in denial of reimbursement.
For questions regarding this notice, please contact Provider Services at the number located in your Quick Reference Guide. When prompted say “Authorizations” or press 2.
Thank you for your continued participation and cooperation in our ongoing efforts to render quality healthcare for our members. We look forward to helping you provide the highest quality of care for our members.
