CMS’s Quarterly Update for July 2022
In addition, we have updated our preauthorization lists to reflect the code changes shared in CMS’ quarterly update for July 2022.
To easily look up whether a code requires preauthorization, we recommend using the Preauthorization Check Tool in the provider portals.
You may also see the preauthorization lists on our websites (EmblemHealth and ConnectiCare). In the event of a discrepancy, the published list will prevail.
