Prior authorization is required for ALL Home and Community-based Services (HCBS). MeridianTotal has 180 days of continuity of care in place. This means that we will not be changing any care plans for MeridianTotal members during the 180 day transition period. Our HCBS Program Specialists have entered in prior authorizations into the system for each of our members that are currently receiving waiver services according to their current care plan.
Providers do not need to contact us to submit a prior authorization form; this will be handled by the HCBS Program Specialist as they are coordinating services for the member.
