4/7/20 | Prior Authorization Waived for Most Transfers to Post-Acute Care Facilities
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas will not require prior authorization for transfers to in-network, medically necessary alternative post-acute facilities until April 30, 2020. During this time, providers will not be required to obtain prior authorization to transfer UT SELECT members from an inpatient hospital to an in-network site such as long-term acute care hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. This will increase acute care capacity for COVID-19 patients and allow members to access medically necessary care. Find more details on the UT Office of Employee Benefits website.
