BATON ROUGE, La.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eQHealth Solutions has been selected by Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) to provide services for the ColoradoPAR (prior authorization request) program. Together, eQHealth and HCPF will serve Medicaid members by focusing on and implementing HCPF’s mission to improve health care access and outcomes for the people we serve while demonstrating sound stewardship of financial resources.
ColoradoPAR is a utilization management program that ensures members receive accurate services and support at the right time and for the correct duration. This program improves quality of care and helps contain health care costs by reducing unnecessary and duplicated services. Designed specifically for Colorado Medicaid, the ColoradoPAR program receives and processes prior authorization requests for services to determine whether those services are a covered benefit and are medically necessary. Through eQHealth Solutions’ decades of experience and comprehensive care solutions and technology, HCPF will bring on a tenured team of experts to execute the healthcare initiatives for the program to achieve contracted milestones and goals while serving the state of Colorado.
“It is an honor to collaborate with Colorado’s Department of Health Care Policy and Financing. We look forward to the start of our partnership and the bright impact it will produce for Colorado’s population as well as its health care providers.
