On-Demand | National Expansion of Prior Authorization
September 2, 2021 | 14:00 ET
Speaker: Brian Werfel
This will be the first in a series of A.A.A. webinars focused on the Prior Authorization Model for Repetitive, Scheduled Non-Emergency Ambulance Transportation (RSNAT). When fully implemented, the RSNAT Model will require prior authorization for all non-emergency ground ambulance services furnished by Part B Ambulance Suppliers on a repetitive basis, i.e., situations where the patient requires transportation three or more times for the same service over a set period of time. In this first installment, we will focus on the technical elements of the RSNAT Model, including the timelines for the initial authorization request, the timeline for follow-up requests, the basic documentation requirements, etc. Brian will then discuss the impact of prior authorization on dialysis transportation payments in those states that participated in the original demonstration project from 2014 to 2021. The session will conclude with a Q&A period for attendees to ask any questions they may have.
