Political Pulse Part 1 – Prior Authorization is dangerous for patients.

Ron Howrigon of Fulcrum Strategies joins Randy Aldridge and John Thompson to discuss the real-life threat to North Carolinians posed by the current Prior Authorization laws.  The conversation covers why PA is a problem and a threat, why evidence-based treatments are seemingly ignored, and the burden of PA on NCMS members.  In this two-part series, Thompson and Howrigon go into detail on the problems of PA in North Carolina and in part two, talk about the impact on clinicians and possible solutions.
