Prior Authorization

A Prior Authorization (PA) is an authorization from MHS to provide services designated as requiring approval prior to treatment and/or payment. All procedures requiring authorization must be obtained by contacting MHS prior to rendering services. PA is required for certain services/procedures which are frequently over- and/or underutilized or services/procedures which are complex and may indicate a need for case management.

Check to see if a pre-authorization is necessary by using our online tool located on the sidebar. It's quick and easy. If an authorization is needed, you can access our Provider Portal to submit online.
