Do Your PARt
The mandated, payer-directed prior authorization of diagnostic imaging and medications is one of the greatest barriers to patient access in today’s cardiovascular practice landscape.The PARtool was created to collect data on disputed prior authorization requests. The data will allow ACC to identify overall prior authorization and test substitution trends and better understand problematic areas of the prior authorization process, including time burdens, test substitutions, and peer-to-peer reviews. Armed with that information, the College can work with insurers, prior authorization vendors, state legislators and insurance officials to reduce the burden of prior authorization.
All Chapter members are encouraged to enter information about disputed prior authorization requests in the PARtool. The time to enter the information (requestor, insurance company, prior authorization vendor, procedure requested, de-identified patient indications) is minimal.
