Medical authorizations

For certain procedures, medications administered in a doctor's office, and other services, your provider must have approval beforehand. Depending on the service and your type of plan, this step is called "preauthorization" or "notification." If your plan requires preauthorization or notification, and your doctor or hospital doesn't get this approval from Humana, your costs may not be covered.
