Prior Authorization Requirements for Behavioral Health Suspension

Please see the memorandum for guidance on the suspension of certain prior authorization requirements for behavioral health providers enrolled in the PA Medical Assistance program. The Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) anticipates these suspensions to facilitate access to services during the COVID-19 disaster emergency declaration period. RCPA staff will be reaching out to the behavioral health managed care organizations to learn how they are implementing this guidance from OMSHAS. If you have questions or concerns regarding this memo, please e-mail ra-pwomhsascovid-19@pa.gov.
