January 13, 2021

The Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission, known as MACPAC, sent a letter to CMS Administrator Seema Verma saying healthcare providers need more time to review the agency's proposed rule to simplify prior authorizations.

On Dec. 10, CMS issued a proposed rule to streamline prior authorizations and create a better exchange of healthcare data between payers, providers and patients.
