The Wisconsin Academy has joined AAO and a number of other states in supporting a letter to Congress sharing our concerns about Prior Authorization abuse in the Medicare Program.  The join letter shares concern that the excessive use of prior authorization in these plans places administrative burdens on physician practices and delays patients' access to timely care. The Academy is continuing to work with the Regulatory Relief Coalition, a group of specialty physician organizations committed to advance the improving Seniors' Timely Access to Care Act (H.R. 3107).
