Family Voices shares the following announcement from IHCP (Indiana Health Coverage Programs): Effective immediately, the Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) no longer requires the signature of a physiatrist on the medical clearance form that must accompany prior authorization (PA) requests for the purchase of power wheelchairs. The IHCP Medical Clearance for Motorized Wheelchair Purchase form on the Forms page at indianamedicaid.com has been updated to remove this requirement. Please download the most current form from the Forms page at indianamedicaid.com. The requesting physician is required to sign both the PA request and medical clearance form. Questions regarding PA should be directed to ADVANTAGE Health SolutionsSM at 1-800-269-5720
