AUA Supports Legislation to Reduce Prior Authorization Requirements

By Policy and Advocacy Brief posted 08-02-2022 13:52


On July 28, the AUA joined the Alliance of Specialty Medicine in a letter to the sponsors of H.R. 7995, the Gold Card Act of 2022, formally endorsing the Gold Card Act. The bill expedites the prior authorization process in the case of physicians for whom at least 90% of their requests submitted to a plan in the preceding year were approved. The AUA and its coalition partners remain committed to finding and supporting legislation solutions that reduce the regulatory burden on urologists and help accelerate care that may be delayed because of prior authorization.

The letter is attached for you to read in its entirety.
