    SCAI Seeks Waiver of Prior Authorization Requirements During Pandemic

    April 17, 2020

    Through SCAI's Regulatory Relief Coalition we are working directly with Governors and State Insurance Commissioners to eliminate or reduce prior authorization requirements. We are seeking this both now during the pandemic when some systems are stretched to their breaking point and for the rush of patients with non-critical needs for care who may flood the health care system once we return to our "new" normal. Leaders in several states have already responded positively to our recommendations.
