Medical authorizations

For certain procedures, medications administered in the doctor's office, and services, your doctor or hospital needs to get advance approval before your plan covers any of the costs. 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.
