Neurosurgery Applauds Introduction of Prior Authorization Bill in the Senate

The AANS and the CNS joined the Regulatory Relief Coalition in announcing its strong support for S. 5044, the “Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act.” In the coalition’s press release, Ann R. Stroink, MD, FAANS, chair of the AANS/CNS Washington Committee, stated, “Neurosurgeons like take care of very sick patients who suffer from painful and life-threatening neurologic conditions such as brain tumors, debilitating, degenerative spine disorders and Parkinson’s Disease, and they cannot afford to wait or jump through unnecessary hoops to get their life-saving care. We are grateful to Senators Brown and Thune for taking this important step to improve prior authorization for our nation’s seniors.”
