Show Notes

While prior authorization serves as vital checks and balances, ensuring clinical quality and preventing fraud, the administrative burden it imposes on providers and payers alike has led to an industry-wide reevaluation of certain codes and an increased push towards technology for auto-approvals and Gold Carding.

Streamlining prior authorization improves the overall experience for payers, providers, and members to ensure timely care and a more efficient healthcare system.
