1/ @AmerMedicalAssn⁩ press release on the urgency to #fixpriorauth:

At the height of the #COVID19 #pandemic, physicians reported being bedeviled by unnecessary, bureaucratic obstacles that the health insurance industry pledged to reduce three years ago.
2/ The data highlights the urgent need for new bipartisan legislation introduced in the House, the Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act. [TY @RepDelBene @MikeKellyPA @RepBera @RepLarryBucshon for introducing this vital measure.]

3/#OurAMA-conducted survey shows physicians are running into roadblocks because of #priorauthorization, the process of requiring health care professionals to obtain advance approval from health plans before a prescription medication or medical service is delivered to the patient.

@MParshleyMD @adamIMdoc @InduPartha @primarycarechat @ACPinternists Urgent need to provide MORE time for ambulatory visits. Us ambulatory specialists have all felt the time crunch of seeing complex patient w/ 5-10 issues (or more) in 15-20 minutes. NOT good #PatientCare. NOT #PatientSafety. Thread 🧵 1 @ACPinternists #IMProud
@MParshleyMD @adamIMdoc @InduPartha @primarycarechat @ACPinternists We need major payment reform so reimbursements & physician “productivity” is NOT volume-centered based on number of visit encounters. THAT drives ambulatory schedules to have visits that are far too short to maximize numbers of visits. Thread 🧵 2 @ACPinternists #IMProud
@MParshleyMD @adamIMdoc @InduPartha @primarycarechat @ACPinternists Focus on value of care, NOT number of visits. Have flexibility of visit lengths based on appropriateness for care complexity. Get rid of “one size fits all” 15-20 minute visits. Simple 1 issue visit ok for that. Complex multi-problems-NOT ok w/ that. Threads 🧵 3 @ACPinternists

1/ @AmerMedicalAssn⁩ submitted comments to ⁦@CMSGov⁩ regarding a NPRM on provider burden reduction and #priorauthorization: tinyurl.com/y5ebobkf

The NPRM cited #OurAMA prior authorization survey data and grassroots website FixPriorAuth.org
2/ The rule proposes policies to help make the prior authorization process more efficient and transparent.

The NPRM would require #Medicaid, CHIP, and federally facilitated health exchange plans to:

•Support technology that would convey #priorauthorization requirements
3/ The NPRM would also require impacted payers to:

•Automate the exchange of supporting clinical data from physicians’ #EHR workflow

•Publicly report data on #priorauthorization programs and comply with processing timeframes
