Meridian- Prior Authorization Process Detail

May 29, 2019

There has been some confusion on the proper forms to send into Meridian for Prior Authorizations. At times, the form is sent to the incorrect fax number, which results in delays of getting the needed authorization approvals in a timely manner.  The Meridian Team must then route the form to the correct intended department, and this causes unneeded delay for the patient.


The link to Prior Authorization which is located on their website To access once you are in the  Meridian website, you choose the state and Line of Business, then there is in the drop down for “Provider Resources”. The appropriate form is the same for any LOB and the training tools; submission options and user guides are located at the top of the form.
