The World of Health Plans– Managing Health Over Healthcare
  Sponsor Message  
  "Three-quarters of 1,000 practicing physicians surveyed by the American Medical Association (AMA) late last year said the prior authorization burden is “high or extremely high.” Each individual physician fielded nearly 37 PA requests in the week before taking the survey, and answering those requests consumed nearly 17 hours of physician and staff time."

Excerpted from: Population Health News, Volume 4 Number 8, August 2017, "The Time Is Ripe for Prior Authorization Reform," by Charles W. Stellar.
