Transmittal 19-10 – UPDATE: Prior Authorization Process for Therapeutic Abortions under the District of Columbia (DC) Fee-For-Service (FFS) Medicaid Program

Monday, March 25, 2019

The purpose of this transmittal is to update the process and procedure to obtain a prior authorization (PA) for a therapeutic abortion, as outlined in Transmittal 18-20. The previous transmittal (18-20) is not aligned with current policy and failed to indicate that a police report is a required document in cases of rape/incest.
