Before implementing a prior authorization program, including requests for additional clinical patient reports and evaluations, the bureaucrats need to submit an impact study on the total additional health care costs that will be incurred downstream by all the stakeholders. Only those programs that achieve total health care savings for everyone should be implemented. Additionally, there needs to be a rule forbidding government or insurance forms with small type or microscopic letters. In order to save on paper costs, many are squeezing as much as they can onto every page. Ever try to read and fill out a question sheet page full of 8-font type?
In their quest to financially justify their value to their contracted health-care insurer, company, or governmental office, via the dollars they saved on paper, prior authorization units and their manages, operating in their own silos, pay little attention to how their policies and processes actually increase total healthcare costs.
