Thank you to all members who have written to Congress and, if you have not already done so, please write your Senators and Representative today and ask them to support the “Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act of 2024” (S. 4518/H.R. 8702). This is bipartisan legislation that was recently reintroduced in the House and Senate aimed at protecting patients from the negative effects of prior authorization policies. The act would reduce unnecessary delays in care and administrative burdens by streamlining and standardizing prior authorization within the Medicare Advantage program. It also institutes much-needed transparency and oversight requirements on health insurers’ use of utilization management policies. These combined policy changes will undoubtedly lead to better health care outcomes for America’s seniors. AAHKS has endorsed the bill and you can click here to learn more about it and write to your Senators and Representative!
