For Aetna’s commercial plans, there is no precertification required for buprenorphine products to treat opioid addiction.


Note: If we need to review applicable medical records, we may assign a tracking number to your precertification request. The tracking number does not indicate approval. You will be notified when a coverage decision is made.


Louisiana providers:

If you’re a provider in Louisiana in the process of credentialing with us — and need to find out if a service requires prior authorization — call the precertification phone number on the member’s ID card. Please don’t use the EDI process to make your request.
