Neurosurgery Comments on CMS Prior Authorization Proposals
On March 7, the AANS and the CNS joined the Regulatory Relief Coalition to urge CMS to implement the Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act (H.R. 3173/S. 3018) into regulations governing Medicare Advantage plans. Subsequently, as members of the Alliance of Specialty Medicine, the AANS and the CNS also responded to the agency’s request for information, also encouraging CMS to adopt the provisions incorporated into the Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act.
