What is a prior authorization request?

insurance documentationHave you ever wondered what a prior authorization request (PAR) is? A PAR is a process that requires a supplier to get approval from your health insurance plan before you are able to receive the supplies. This is to ascertain the medical necessity for your prescribed supplies.

Not every health insurance plan requires prior authorizations, and each plan has its own guidelines. For example, in addition to a detailed prescription, a health insurance carrier may also require supporting documentation like medical progress notes.
