Information on prior authorizations

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Did you know that you may be required to get prior approval from Blue Cross for certain medical services or procedures? This is called preauthorization and it helps you:

  • Find out if you’re covered by your benefits before you have your scheduled procedure.
  • Save money and avoid extra costs.
  • Estimate your out-of-pocket costs before you get your service.
  • Avoid unnecessary services.

Learn more about the preauthorization process in your Member Handbook.
