CSEPS joins AAO in push for prior auth relief

Posted By Chet Seward, Tuesday, October 9, 2018
Health plan administrative hassles, specifically prior authorization, are one of the leading practice pain points for ophthalmologists and other physicians. Problems with prior authorization can be particularly acute with Medicare Advantage health plans. 

Working closely with the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), CSEPS recently sent letters to the Colorado congressional delegation asking that they sign onto a letter authored by Reps. Phil Roe (R-TN) and Ami Bera (D-CA). The Roe-Bera letter is being sent to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to direct Medicare Advantage plans to increase transparency, streamline the prior authorization process and minimize impacts on patients. Review the letter here.
