The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has established a nationwide prior authorization (PA) process and requirements for certain hospital outpatient department (OPD) services. This process serves as a method for controlling unnecessary increases in the volume of these services and to ensure that medical necessity is met.

Two services have been added to this program. Providers can submit a PA request as early as June 17, 2021, for date of service on or after July 1, 2021, for the following:

  • Cervical Fusion with Disc Removal
  • Implanted Spinal Neurostimulators

Please watch this on-demand webinar for more information.
