Medicaid - Therapy and Pain Management Implementation Delayed

August 25, 2021

Dear Provider,

WellCare of Kentucky had recently announced expanding their partnership with National Imaging Associates Inc. (NIA) 1 to provide utilization for interventional pain management and rehabilitative and habilitative physical medicine services beginning on Sept. 1, 2021.

Due to unforeseen operational challenges, these programs have been delayed until further notice. eviCore will continue to manage all pain management and rehabilitative and habilitative physical medicine requests for the time being. Therefore, please continue to submit prior authorization to eviCore until further notice.  Please be on the lookout for further communication on this topic in the future.

Sincerely,

WellCare of Kentucky
