Reform the burdensome prior authorization process

Prior authorization continues to be an increasingly burdensome process affecting patient access to timely healthcare. Even during a global pandemic, orthopaedic surgeons saw the implantation of new prior authorization requirements rise substantially. Without reforms, prior authorization will continue to be an administrative burden on providers and an unnecessary barrier to care for patients. Please join AAOS in urging your Representatives to support legislation that streamlines and standardizes the prior authorization process and that provides oversight and transparency for health insurance.
