SCAI, working with the Regulatory Relief Coalition (RRC), recently prevailed upon 29 US Senators, including 10 members of the Senate Finance Committee, to urge the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to take additional steps to strengthen prior authorization policies.
The letter explicitly mentions the Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act, (S.5044/H.R.3173) and requests that CMS update its recommended next steps for improving prior authorizations. SCAI will continue to work with the RRC on this important issue and asks that SCAI members write their Members of Congress to pass these bills before the end of this year.
