Pre-authorizations and Organization Determinations


As a Brand New Day member you can request a self-referral (pre-authorization) to see a specialist or receive medical services and items. Typically, your provider will do this for you.

When you or your provider send a pre-authorization, Brand New Day reviews and makes an organization determination. An organization determination is the first decision Brand New Day makes about covering a medical service or item you’ve requested.

If the pre-authorization is a standard request, we will notify you of a decision within 14 calendar days.

There are times where you or your provider may submit an expedited pre-authorization for a fast organization decision. An expedited pre-authorization qualifies for a fast decision if we determine that your life, health, or ability to regain maximum function may be seriously jeopardized by waiting for a standard request.

If the pre-authorization is an expedited request, we will notify you of a decision within 72 hours.


Where do I send my pre-authorization and/or request for an organization determination?


Please see below how you or your provider can submit a pre-authorization for an organization determination on medical services and items.
