IMPORTANT CHANGE EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 1, 2020: For Care Wisconsin contracted providers, your authorization process will change for Family Care members. An authorization is required prior to rendering ALL services effective on or after February 1, 2020 for Family Care program members. Care teams will enter all authorizations and providers will be able to see and/or print the authorization from the MIDAS portal for these members. Training on this new process will be available by January 27, 2020. The Prior Authorization Reference Document linked here has been updated to reflect these changes and is effective February 1, 2020, while the version linked below is current until that date.
Please note: This excludes Partnership, Medicare Dual Advantage, and Medicaid SSI members. The authorization process for these programs will continue as usual until further notice.
