MGMA statement on Senate Proposal to Address Prior Authorization
 
 
Anders Gilberg

Senior Vice President, Government Affairs

Medical Group Management Association


MGMA appreciates the efforts of U.S. Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and John Thune (R-SD), who today introduced the updated Senate companion version of the Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act. This legislation would significantly improve the prior authorization process, an issue medical groups identify as one of their leading administrative burdens. The COVID-19 pandemic has emphasized the need to ensure patients have improved access to treatment and care. This bill seeks to achieve that by decreasing the volume of authorization requirements and speeding up communications between medical groups and health plans. We urge Congress to expedite passage of this critical legislation.
