Acquiring Electronic Prior Authorization
An Electronic Prior Authorization (ePA) enables electronic transmission of information between the provider and payer to determine whether or not a prior authorization for a medication is granted.
Based on information sent from the patient's insurance, medications that require prior authorization are marked with a "PA" indicator. You can submit requests for prior authorization directly through Eyefinity EHR, saving you and your patients time.
