CMS responds to physicians’ concerns over plans to address PA

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has responded to a letter that the Medical Association of Georgia and the American Medical Association and a number of other physicians’ advocacy organizations sent to CMS in 2019 to urge it to address the administrative burden associated with the prior authorization process in a comprehensive way (i.e., as opposed to relying on automation as the only solution).
