Prior Authorization and Vision Patients
Treatment decisions should be made by the people who know the condition and its effects the best: the patients and providers. But prior authorization put insurers in the front seat and lets them make decisions about what patients can receive.
Prior Authorization Harms Vision Patients
As patients wait for approval from their insurer, their vision condition goes untreated. Patients face frustrating, painful or debilitating symptoms, all while knowing there is available treatment they can’t access.
Many vision conditions can lead to irreversible vision loss, and access to appropriate and timely treatment can be the difference of maintaining current vision or experiencing lifelong damage.
