Advanced imaging changes affect prior authorizations

Effective March 1, 2016, eQHealth Solutions (eQHS) began performing prior authorization reviews for advanced imaging services, in accordance with Mississippi Administrative Code Title 23, Part 220 Radiology Services. Prior to March 1, 2016 advanced imaging services were prior authorized through MedSolutions (eviCore).

The Mississippi Division of Medicaid (DOM) will honor MedSolutions (eviCore) treatment authorization numbers issued to rendering providers for dates of services on or before March 30, 2016.

Advanced imaging prior authorization requests pended for additional information by MedSolutions (eviCore) on or after March 1, 2016 must be submitted to eQHS as a new prior authorization request. eQHS will conduct webinar sessions designed to assist providers with this transition. All providers and staff are encouraged to attend one of these informative sessions.
