Prior Authorization

Even during a global pandemic, orthopaedic surgeons saw the implantation of new prior authorization requirements rise substantially. Without reforms, these  prior authorization processes will continue to be an administrative burden on surgeons 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 while providing oversight and transparency for health insurance providers.
