My experience with prior authorizations, like that of so many Americans, has been horrendous to say the least. I have literally waited an entire week for simple medications ... It has proven absolutely detrimental to getting proper medical treatment and has negatively impacted my own personal recovery many times over. It has gotten so far out of control that even a simple antibiotic such as 'Amoxicillin' now requires prior authorizations and it's even in its generic form!?!

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 authorization from an insurer? Or are you a physician frustrated with the administrative headaches and their impact on your patient?

Prior authorization is a burden on patients and physicians alike. The process is confusing, time consuming, and — most importantly — can cause delays in patients receiving the care they need.

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.
