Neurosurgeon Publishes Op-Ed on Prior Authorization
On July 21, The American Spectator published an op-ed by Richard Menger, MD, MPA, a member of the AANS/CNS Communications and Public Relations (CPR) Committee. Titled “Bipartisan Bill Would Improve Medicare Patients’ Access to Care,” Dr. Menger discusses how H.R. 3173, the Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act, could bring transparency to the process of prior authorization in Medicare Advantage (MA) plans. On July 26, Neurosurgery Blog published a cross-post to amplify the message.
