How long will it take to get authorization for my procedure or MRI?2014-01-20T13:10:47-07:00

Because each insurance company has it own requirements and process for authorization, it can be hard to predict how long your authorization will take. Some only take a few days, while others can take weeks for your insurance company to approve. In certain cases, patients can significantly expedite their authorization by contacting their insurance provider directly. You can always check on the status of your authorization request by calling our Auth Department at 480-245-6181.
