Like the “Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act of 2021.” (H.R. 3173), S. 3018 would help protect America’s seniors from unnecessary delays in care by streamlining and standardizing prior authorization under the Medicare Advantage program, providing much-needed oversight and transparency of health insurance for Medicare beneficiaries.  

Sponsored by Senators Roger Marshall, MD (R-KS), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), and John Thune (R-SD), this bi-partisan legislation would require electronic prior authorization, improve transparency for beneficiaries and providers alike, and increase Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) oversight on how Medicare Advantage (MA) plans use prior authorization.
