Electronic Prior Authorization/Inpatient Notification 2019 Beginning in 2019, PacificSource Health Plans will no longer be accepting prior authorization (PA) requests via fax or U.S. Mail. Instead, we ask that you submit prior authorization requests via our provider portal, InTouch. We will be making outreach to your offices to assist you in getting an account created, and assist with any training. If you do not have access to InTouch, please visit and register. Here is a link with some more information about InTouch as well: In some cases, your billing office may be using it already. If so, you can contact them to find out who your administrator is on the account, and they can contact OneHealthPort to have additional users added. This can include front desk personnel or anyone who needs to submit PAs. Please do not hesitate to contact your Provider Service Representative should you have any questions. We will be happy to assist you in any training you might need to utilize this portal. Please note, preauthorization is to establish medical necessity, this does not override our system clinical edits. The following information is necessary to complete a request: • Date • Patient’s name • Date of birth • Member number & group number • CPT/HCPCS code and description • Durable medical equipment: rental or purchase (if applicable) • Date of service • Expected length of stay (if applicable) • Place of service or vendor name • Assistant surgeon requested (yes or no, if applicable) Prior authorization determinations are made within two business days for nonurgent preservice requests • Diagnosis codes (ICD-10) and description

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
