Prior authorizations

AmeriHealth Caritas Iowa providers are responsible for obtaining prior authorization for certain services. Your claim may be denied or rejected if the prior authorization is not obtained before the service was rendered.

Prior authorization is not a guarantee of payment for the service authorized. AmeriHealth Caritas Iowa reserves the right to adjust any payment made following a review of the medical record and determination of the medical necessity of the services provided.
