Featured topic and speakers
93% of physicians surveyed by the AMA in 2021 said that prior authorization delays access to necessary care, and even worse, 34% of physicians reported that prior authorization has led to a serious adverse event for a patient in their care. Physicians know they spend an inordinate amount of time dealing with the hassles of prior authorization, but when patients are being harmed because of it—it’s clear something has to change.
AMA President Jack Resneck Jr., MD, hosts a webinar on Friday, April 14 at 11 a.m. Central, to dig further into the current state of prior authorization and how the AMA is working to fix it. Heather McComas, PharmD, director, Administrative Simplification Initiatives, AMA, and Emily Carroll, JD, senior legislative attorney, Advocacy Resource Center, AMA, will join Dr. Resneck to talk about the latest reform efforts and how you can get involved. You’ll also hear about results of the AMA’s latest prior authorization survey conducted at the end of 2022.
