Surgery and Procedures

To determine whether or not a surgery or procedure requires a Prior Authorization, please see the current Medicaid Fee Schedule

Please see the ICD-9 list of procedures and diagnoses requiring prior authorization from Tellegin or the ICD-10 list of procedures and diagnoses requiring prior authorization from Tellegin to determine if you should request a prior authorization from them. 

To apply for access to the Telligen Portal please fill out the registration packet located in the document library on the Telligen site. Once approved, providers can submit a request to either Telligen or Medicaid’s Medical Care Unit, but not both.   

Those requiring a prior authorization, and are not reviewed by Telligen, are reviewed by the Medical Care Unit as established in the list of surgeries requiring prior authorization from Medicaid's Medical Care Unit.

The Medical Care Unit also reviews a select number of inpatient hospital procedure codes.


Medical Care Unit Authorizations

Prior authorizations that are not reviewed by Telligen should be faxed to the Medical Care Unit at (877) 314-8779 on the Medical Prior Authorization Form. Please, include proof of medical necessity with your request. Requests are only accepted by fax.

The status of a prior authorization request may be checked online at the Molina Health PAS portal under “Authorization Status”, using your NPI, or by contacting Molina at (866) 686-4272.

For other questions or general information, contact (208) 364-1833.
