Really, my doctor wanted me to do hormone shots with my chemo but [the insurer] refused, so we had to go on a hormone pill instead. Took 3 weeks to get my chemo pill approved… the shots probably would have been more potent.

Have you ever gone to the pharmacy to fill a prescription only to be told that your insurance company requires approval before they'll cover your treatment? Have you ever waited for days, weeks or months for a test or medical procedure to be scheduled because you needed authorization from an insurer? Or are you a physician frustrated with the administrative headaches and their impact on your patients?

Please tell us know how prior authorization has impacted you. We are looking for stories from patients and physicians to highlight and draw attention to this issue that is impacting the health of so many Americans.
