Reform the burdensome prior authorization process

Bi-partisan legislation was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives aimed at protecting patients from the burden of prior authorizations. H.R. 3107, the Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act of 2019 would reduce unnecessary delays in care by streamlining and standardizing prior authorization under the Medicare Advantage program, providing oversight and transparency for health insurance. Please join AAOS in urging your Representative to cosponsor this bill.
