Imaging Authorization Process Change Webinars

Comagine Health introduced a new AK imaging assessment questionnaire requirement that goes into effect October 1, 2020.

This new imaging assessment questionnaire is called AK Imaging Assessment B or Trigger Assessment. AK Imaging Assessment B will automatically populate based on your selections when completing the AK Imaging Assessment (A). Completion of this brief trigger assessment will be required when it populates, in order to move forward with the submission of your imaging prior authorization (PA) request. We review imaging PA request provider portal submissions, utilizing the correct provider portal URL and documentation requirements.
