PT, OT, and Speech Therapy PA requests – Use dedicated fax line

May 24, 2011

Recently, the process for Prior Authorization of physical, occupational, and speech therapy changed. (See May 1, 2011 memo for details.)

Therapy requests need to be faxed to (207)626-2984, and not to the MIHMS Prior Authorization fax number. All requests must use the fax cover sheet provided. In addition, therapy requests cannot be submitted using the MIHMS Health PAS on-line portal. Requests faxed to the wrong number or submitted on the MIHMS portal will not be processed.

If you have questions about the new process for therapy requests, please call 1-866-796-2463 and ask for the OMS Prior Authorization Unit.
