317:55-5-12. Prior authorization requirements, generally
The OHCA will establish prior authorization requirements that are consistent with 56 O.S. '' 4002-4004. MCOs and DBMs may establish prior authorization of benefits to the extent these are consistent with OHCA's policies and rules. The MCO or DBM may propose to impose additional prior authorization requirements, subject to OHCA's review and approval, except for those benefits identified in the Oklahoma Medicaid State Plan, rules, or practices as exempt from prior authorization. The MCO or DBM may be less restrictive on the requirements of a prior authorization than OHCA but may not impose greater restrictions.
