Pre-authorization refers to the process where an insurer approves medical
services based on medical necessity prior to services being provided.
Determining a pre-authorization requirement is the responsibility of the
ordering physician or patient. If the procedure requires pre-authorization,
the Office of Inspector General (OIG) acknowledges the ordering physician
has the responsibility of acquiring approval for the service.

Medically Necessary Testing
If you have experience with
Medicare or a health insurance plan, you probably know that Medicare and insurance
companies only cover services that they view as medically necessary to
diagnose or treat your health condition, based on criteria decided by
the federal government and private Medicare contractors. For more information
about what this means, please
At Campbell County Health, we want to help you know ahead of time what
services will be covered by your insurance plan. We will make every attempt
to contact your
provider to request information about the test or service they have requested in
order to meet your plan’s definition of “medically necessary”.
However, if we don’t receive the requested information, you may
receive a written notice from us called an Advance Beneficiary Notice
of Noncoverage (ABN) if we think Medicare or your insurance company may
not pay for the items or services ordered by your doctor.
The ABN gives you information to make an informed choice about whether
or not to receive items or services, understanding that you may have to
accept responsibility for payment. You’ll be asked to choose an
option box and sign the notice to say that you read and understood it.
An ABN isn’t an official denial of coverage by Medicare. You have
the right to file an appeal if payment is denied when a claim is submitted.
If you have additional questions or concerns about this process, please call our
Patient Accounting department at 307.688.1400.
