New Referral/Authorization Request Form Available
United Healthcare Military & Veterans recently enhanced the Referral/Authorization Request Form used to submit requests for care. The new Referral/Authorization Request Form has been redesigned to be more user-friendly when requesting care for specialty referrals, outpatient (medical/surgical), inpatient (acute, skilled nursing facility, rehab), and durable medical equipment/home health requests.
Effective immediately, forms missing information marked “required” will be rejected and faxed back to the provider for correction. To help you transition to the new Referral/Authorization Request Form, the previous form will continue to be accepted until 02/28/2015. After this date, all referral requests submitted on the outdated form will be rejected with a request to use the new form. (Read More)
