Information regarding electronic prior authorization services for Kentucky Medicaid prescribers.
Automated prior authorization (PA) services allow prescribers to securely initiate PAs in the patient’s electronic medical record (EMR/EHR) or through vendor connectivity portals. These solutions integrate seamlessly into the prescriber workflow, reducing the need for paper/fax or telephonic solutions.
