Medical Transportation Program Handbook : 4 Meals Provider : 4.2 Prior Authorization for Meals Providers

4.2
An MTP client must contact MTP to request meal services to initiate the claims process for meal providers.
Upon authorization of meal services, MTP will send an authorization form directly to the MTP client. This form will include the MTP client’s name, the attendant’s name, and the date of the authorized meal(s). The MTP client’s attendant must present this authorization form to the meal provider for meals to be received by the client.
Important:
One authorization covers all authorized meals for a single day. Each day of meals must be authorized by MTP and will be assigned a unique authorization number.
