The amount of time and money spent by a practice and its staff to persuade an insurance company to cover a procedure or medication is a bothersome distraction. It is true that the patient who is the beneficiary of the prior authorization process ultimately bears the brunt due to miscommunication between the provider and the payer, resulting in treatment delays.
Abandonment of prescriptions, procedures can be a critical torment especially for patients with chronic diseases. The Medicare and Medicaid cuts as expected, ask for streamlined processes, fast and proactive eligibility verification and authorization practices. The overall cost to the healthcare system with all practice interactions including authorizations is a whopping $31 billion annually.
The two most common imaging procedures like CT scans and MRI, along with sleep studies and ultrasounds have different prior authorization requirements. Insurance referrals and prior authorizations consume nearly 25% of the time of a practice’s front desk staff and receptionists that could have been rendering effective care. In an era of individualized healthcare delivery, a provider must have proper provisions in place and make arrangements to better prior authorization that ensures effective checks and balances.
