Triump Health provides Prior-Authorization services to assist healthcare providers in obtaining prior approval for medical procedures, treatments, or tests from insurance companies.


In our experience working with medical practices, we have observed that a large number of denials happen because a patient is not eligible or authorized for services billed to the payer. We help you to dramatically reduce the prior-authorization denials, by obtaining prior-authorization well before the patient’s scheduled appointment. Therefore, the patient’s obligation is clear and available at the point of service, thus accelerating the payment before the visit even begins. In addition, it helps in filing clean claims, resulting in reduced accounts receivable days and increased collections.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a prior authorization in the context of healthcare, and why is it necessary?

Prior authorization in healthcare refers to the process where healthcare providers obtain approval from insurance companies before delivering certain medical services or procedures. It is necessary to ensure that treatments or procedures meet specific criteria for coverage, controlling costs, and preventing unnecessary or inappropriate healthcare utilization.

How does the prior authorization process work, and what information is typically required for submission?

The prior authorization process involves healthcare providers submitting requests to insurance companies, typically including patient demographics, medical history, diagnosis codes, procedure codes, supporting clinical documentation, and sometimes provider notes. Insurance companies review this information to determine if the requested service meets their coverage criteria.

What are the common challenges or delays associated with obtaining prior authorizations, and how do you address them?

Common challenges or delays associated with obtaining prior authorizations include lengthy approval times, administrative burdens, complex requirements, and potential for denials. Healthcare providers can address these challenges by employing dedicated staff, utilizing electronic submission systems, maintaining clear communication with payers, and staying informed about payer policies.

Can you provide information on the impact of prior authorizations on patient access to timely medical treatments and procedures?

Prior authorizations can impact patient access to timely medical treatments and procedures by causing delays in care, increased administrative burden for patients and providers, and potential barriers to accessing necessary services. Delays may result in worsened health outcomes for patients.

What steps can healthcare providers take to streamline the prior authorization process and minimize delays for patients?

Healthcare providers can streamline the prior authorization process and minimize delays for patients by implementing electronic prior authorization systems, conducting thorough eligibility verification upfront, maintaining open communication with payers, educating patients about the process, and advocating for streamlined authorization processes with insurance companies. These steps can help improve patient access to timely care while reducing administrative burdens for both providers and patients.
