ANNOUNCEMENTS
Important Information Regarding PAR Revisions - Tuesday, April 25, 2017

On March 1st, 2017 Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) changed fiscal agents from Xerox Healthcare to Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).

 

eQHealth Solutions' role in the prior authorization request (PAR) process remains the same as it was before the transition – to review PARs for medical necessity and to render appropriate determinations (e.g. approve, deny).
 

As many providers are aware, the new HPE system is continuing to experience issues processing PAR revisions. (A PAR revision is any change made to an approved PAR, such as a date change or a coding/units change.) As a result, corresponding PARs approved after March 1st do not reflect approved changes.

 

We understand that this issue is preventing many providers from billing properly, and we are working with both HPE and the Department of Health Care Policy & Financing (HCPF) to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.  We kindly ask all providers for their continued patience until the issue is resolved.  Please continue to check www.ColoradoPAR.com for updates.

 

In the meantime, please continue submitting your PARs as well as your PAR revisions through eQSuite®, as eQHealth Solutions will continue to review them for medical necessity.  You may also check eQSuite® to see whether your PARs and/or revisions have been approved.

 

Thank you for your understanding.
