Precertification Services

Children’s is pleased to provide precertification services for radiology procedures requiring prior authorization. If your practice will furnish us the necessary information, our team of insurance verifiers will attempt to obtain any required authorization on behalf of Children’s.

Precertification is available to all physicians and their patients and seeks to make ordering of outpatient radiology exams simple, with the goal of treating pediatric patients in an environment specifically tailored to their imaging needs.

Getting started

When your practice registers for this service, we will collect the information generally needed to request authorizations. To sign up, download the Radiology Precertification Services Registration form and provide:

  • Names of practice physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners 
  • National provider identification (NPI) for each physician
  • Practice manager contact information
  • Tax ID for the practice

After completing the form, email it to radprecert@choa.org or fax to 404-785-9268.

For information on the precertification status, call the Patient Access Supervisor at 404-785-5478 or the Patient Access Team Lead at 404-785-7395. There are no assurances that preauthorization will be obtained.
