The North Carolina Medial Society, The American Medical Association (AMA), and 117 other leading medical societies united this week in strong support of the meaningful prior authorization reforms proposed for Medicare Advantage and the Medicare prescription drug benefit.

NCMS signed on to a letter sent to the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator The Honorable Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, thanking her and urging the CMS to finalize proposed prior authorization reforms that target the inappropriate use of authorization requirements by Medicare Advantage plans to delay, deny, and disrupt the provision of medically necessary care to patients.
