Automate Prior Authorization with a Human Touch

We get it– prior authorizations (PAs) are not fun. They can take valuable time away from care, and when claims are denied, that creates a less than ideal situation between you and your patients.

Our data indicates that 71% of prior authorizations are completed by clinical staff. In these cases, clinical expertise (and higher cost) is allocated to administrative work that is often frustrating and cumbersome. We know that completing PAs doesn’t fuel the passion that inspired you to work in healthcare. But at the end of the day, PAs must be obtained one way or another.

“My staff spends so much time with prior authorizations and insurance issues that we struggle to answer the phone when a patient calls.”
