TGAO: Prior Authorization Saves Money
MAY 24, 2018
(May 24, 2018)—Recently, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) conducted a study on Medicare prior authorization requirements. The requirements began in seven states for certain power mobility devices such as power wheelchairs in 2012. The categories later expanded to include DME, home health and others. Some programs, such as the DMEPOS program are permanent, and others, such as home health, are paused.

On May 21, 2018, the GAO released their findings publicly with the recommendation that prior authorization continue across industry categories, prior to some programs expiring.
