DOCTORS STAND UP
Take back control. We have allowed money managers to harm patients by dictating clinical decision making. Time to push back and speak up.
END PRIOR AUTHORIZATIONS
Prior authorizations are just one pillar of a broken system. They cause patients to delay and miss treatments. While creating an illusion they are based on data, prior authorizations are simply about profit. The AMA has already tried a fix and failed. Each time powerful lobbies step in to maintain the status quo.
It is time for greater fairness. Doctors have the power to fix the problem because prior authorizations would not exist without our permission.
WHAT WE CAN DO
Push back against those who profit by delaying and denying patient care
SPEAK TO ELECTED OFFICIALS
Some of our elected officials are slow to change the existing system. In part from inertia and fear but some profit from the status quo. They will respond to pressure. Tell patients to call their representatives. To let them know that prior auths hurt patients. That prior auths delay care and increase the risk of hospitalizations.
No-one can make you feel powerless without your consent
