Session 23: Prior Authorization Coming to State Near You

Time: 10:30AM to 11:45AM | Track: Policy, Reimbursement & Compliance | Presenter: John Iazzetta, Alert Ambulance

Recently, CMS initiated a demonstration project in three states whereby routine non-emergency BLS transports were subjected to prior authorization. The project will expand to 5 additional states in 2016 and across all 50 by 2017. So far, more than 30 BLS providers in New Jersey alone have gone out of business. This session will offer attendees a provider’s prospective of the demonstration project detailing tips and tools to help companies successfully navigate through the process.
