WellFirst Health medical policies

Services will be reviewed according to the Medicare Coverage Guidelines, established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). According to the guidelines, all medical care, services, supplies and equipment must be medically necessary. 

In scenarios where CMS does not provide guidance on the particular medical care, service, supplies and equipment, WellFirst Health  will use MCG (formerly Milliman Care Guidelines) criteria or a WellFirst Health medical policy. See the WellFirst Health Medical Services Prior Authorization List to access the medical policies relevant to the services you are requesting.
