We have to comply with the patient's insurance, and their authorization need to be approved prior to the patient being seen. We checked their auth was not yet approve the day of their appointment. We tried to let the pt know, however we were unable to get a hold of them. When the pt came in, we explained to them the situation and advised them to call their insurance to get their authorization approved. If it is not approved, unfortunately we are not able to see the patient.
