Due to the increase in COVID-19 related admissions, we’re temporarily waiving the prior authorization requirement for skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) effective September 7, 2021, through October 31, 2021. For details, view the intermediate levels
of care section on the Admission Notification page.
Premera requires prior authorization for many services before they take place. Not getting prior authorization beforehand can result in a payment penalty for you or the member. For a service requiring a pre-service review, there isn’t a penalty, but Premera
will hold the claim and ask for medical records Note: Prior authorizations can't be submitted by phone.
Prior authorization requests are submitted on different websites for 2020 individual and non-individual plan members (groups, associations, etc.). Sign in to the appropriate website to complete your request.
