Medical Authorizations

For certain procedures, medications administered in the doctor's office, and services, your doctor or hospital needs advanced 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."

How to find out if a service requires preauthorization

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.
