Prior authorization (PA) is one of the most significant issues plaguing Tennessee physicians. TMA is working with the major payers to address administrative burdens in an effort to reduce prior authorization hassles by health insurance plans and government payers. It has formed a workgroup to discuss these burdens and work toward resolution.
TMA is hosting a series of webinars to educate providers on the prior authorization process and offer solutions to difficult situations.
