Beginning Aug. 1, 2019, Alliant Health Solutions will begin performing prior authorization reviews as the Mississippi Division of Medicaid (DOM) transitions to a new Utilization Management/Quality Improvement Organization (UM/QIO) vendor.
Alliant is hosting a series of informational webinars throughout July and into August. To sign up for a webinar, or to learn more about these changes, visit Alliant’s Mississippi Medicaid portal at https://ms.allianthealth.org.
Prior authorizations for beneficiaries enrolled in MississippiCAN will continue to be handled by the respective coordinated care organizations.
All prior authorization reviews in process before Aug. 1 will be completed by eQHealth as part of the transition to Alliant. Therefore any requests submitted on or before July 31 will be handled by eQHealth and providers will submit related inquiries, requested information and documentation to eQHealth during the month of August. This UM/QIO transition applies to all prior authorization services currently reviewed by eQHealth with the exception of advanced imaging services, which will continue to be handled by eQHealth.
