Claimant attorneys can receive prior authorization request (PAR) status email notifications from OnBoard. At the time of the initial PAR submission by the health care provider, the attorney or firm needs to have an assigned R-Number, an email address in their profile, and be on notice to the claim for which the PAR is filed to receive notifications. The generated PAR document will be available in eCase.
Claimant attorneys will receive notifications for all PAR types listed below. Notifications for items with a red X or N/A will not be included in notification emails.
