1199 breast reduction
Authorizations can always be extended unless there is an interim change in policy terms. Typically, the insurers will require a new plastic surgeon to go through the same authorization process, meaning that the clock starts ticking again on the timing to approve or deny. Some 1199 policies are tied to Blue Cross, requiring approval by two separate carriers. In order to facilitate a new approval, you should obtain all the records and correspondence used to substantiate the first one.
