AH216 Week 4 Discussion
You are interning
at Dr. Smiths family practice office. The practice manager for Dr. Smith tells
you that tomorrow you will be working with Jane who does prior authorizations
for this busy office.
You are unfamiliar
with the term prior authorization so you plan on researching this topic
tonight. Prepare a document that illustrates what you find in researching prior
authorizations. Include what prior authorizations are, what services typically
require prior authorizations, why they are important and why a prior
authorization might not be approved.
