At CHM, we had prior authorization reps who were employed in the department and did all Authorizations for prescriptions, imaging, procedures and infusions. It is a large service with many attendings. At my current employer we have business office assistants who do authorizations for admissions and imaging, our office coordinator does authorizations for infusions and the RN’S and Medical Assistants get them for prescriptions.

Hi- Who is completing your prior authorizations for outpatient therapy? Medications? Who is completing your admission/inpatient authorizations?
If this is not clinical staff, what is the title and can you provide the job description?
