Simplifying Prior Authorization Executive Roundtable Meeting

09:30 AM - 02:30 PM

Prior authorization was created to address fraud, waste and abuse in our healthcare system. It has become an onerous process that interferes with nearly every high-cost ordering action while only a fraction of orders are stopped. Payer- and policy-specific nuances make the process even worse. Patients end up waiting to receive medications and procedures, resulting in worse health. Prior authorization is a process that seems ripe for disruption.

The Simplifying Prior Authorization Executive Roundtable Series brings together relevant stakeholders to discuss industry-wide and...

Advisory Council on Social Determinants of Health Data

Webinar: Prior Authorization

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Prior authorization is a cost-control process that requires providers to qualify for payment before performing a service through an approval process. Despite its good intentions, this extra step to determine whether or not a procedure is appropriate and will ultimately be covered is often an inconvenience for both physicians and consumers. Most care delays are associated with prior authorization issues, which contributes to patients abandoning treatment and administrative inefficiencies: wasted time and money.

In efforts to streamline operations, prevent gaps in care, and...
