REFERRALS AND AUTHORIZATIONS
PsycHealth Care Management, LLC. works with members and providers to coordinate quality outpatient and inpatient services for members.
Our staff strives to ensure that the services our members receive go hand-in-hand with the expertise of the providers delivering those services.
We work with service providers who do not discriminate based on race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, place of residence, national origin, insurance plan, age or physical or mental health status.
Our trained and qualified staff members coordinate services over-the-phone and through our Provider Portal.
The Provider Portal, also known as QC Portal, is a comprehensive managed care software that is highly flexible, easy to use and powerful. The software allows PsycHealth providers to verify eligibility, enter referral and authorization requests, submit claims and view the status of all data in real-time from any internet web browser. If you need access to the portal and you are eligible, contact us to schedule a training.
Referral and Authorization status inquiries can be obtained during normal business hours by calling:
All requests for services will be evaluated on the basis of medical necessity and services must be available to the member in accordance with the following accessibility standards:
Accessibility is the extent to which a member can obtain available services at the time they are needed. This refers to both telephone access as well as the ability to schedule an appointment.
Non-urgent referrals will be provided during normal business hours according to the certificate of benefits established by the member’s health plan.
Emergency services do not require pre-certification. However, under circumstances when the PsycHealth Care Management, LLC. UM staff is contacted, UM staff will provide, arrange for or otherwise facilitate all needed emergency services.
