What It Is

  • Powered by McKesson’s Clear CoverageTM.
  • Used for submitting authorization requests.
  • Implemented in three phases.

How It Works

  • Because the tool is interactive and uses real-time data, instant approval can occur when medical necessity criteria is met.
  • Users will follow a three-minute, seven-step process to request an authorization.
  • When approval is given, an authorization number will be generated.
  • The authorization number will need to be put on the claim when it is submitted.
  • Prior approvals are required.
  • If authorization is not completed for a service, procedure, or DME that requires pre-service review, the claim will be denied
