A slideshow with reaction and responses to latest version of the Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act.

Now is the time to reform the prior authorization (PA) process for Medicare Advantage (MA), a move that will benefit patients and physicians.

A group of bipartisan, bicameral legislators announced the reintroduction of the Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act. The bill has had widespread support in the past, but it also prompted concerns about potential costs within the Medicare system. The revised version addresses costs while streamlining the process used to obtain approval before physicians order procedures or prescriptions for patients.

The bill’s sponsors published statements affirming their support for the legislation. They were followed by medical groups that have been clamoring for meaningful reforms to the PA process.

This slideshow compiles some of the commentary on the pending legislation, as of June 12, 2024.
