Pre-Certifications / Pre-Authorizations vs. Prior Determinations
At the Kirklin Clinic, an MEG scan is performed as an outpatient diagnostic procedure
, which does not require Pre-Certification or Prior Determination for most BC/BS of AL patients and Medicare patients. However, other insurance plans frequently consider this procedure as a non-covered benefit and will require a Prior-Determination
before officially approving coverage for these types of procedures.
