Prior Authorization Code Check

  • Enter medical and dental service codes to see if prior authorization is required.

    1. Check a code

    Note: This tool does not include non-specific or unlisted codes (general codes that do not describe specific services) unless they are associated with a specific medical policy. We review all non-specific and unlisted codes when the claim is submitted, regardless of whether they relate to a medical policy. The code check tool is not a guarantee of coverage as member contracts may differ in benefits. The Federal Employee Program (FEP) has a separate code list and review requirements. View FEP prior authorization details.

    Please make sure you're entering a valid, 5-character code. The code check tool does not accept modifiers.

    2. Submit a review
