In the healthcare industry, manual Prior Authorization (PA) processes have become a significant burden. They lead to delays, frustration, and unnecessary costs for both providers and payers. According to the American Medical Association, 93% of physicians1 report care delays due to Prior Authorization, with an average cost of $13 per manual submission.
The CMS 2026 Mandate: Why Act Now?
While 2026 may seem distant, the preparations required to meet this mandate are extensive, and time is becoming a scarce resource.
Waiting until 2025, as many organizations might, could be risky. The complexity of ePA (electronic Prior Authorization) implementation may mean that organizations find themselves short of resources and time as the mandate's deadline draws near.
