EHRA Says “Yes!” But Wants More Time on CMS’ ePrior Authorization Standard for Medicare Part D

The Electronic Health Record Association endorsed CMS’ version 2017071 standard for electronic prior authorization applied to prescription drugs within the Medicare Part D program. This new standard will replace manual processes and increase the use of ePrescribing and eTransaction processing. For pharmacists and HCPs to communicate electronically, the benefits are numerous and eliminate delays in coverage and speed access to therapy.

CBI’s 12th Real-Time Benefit Check & ePrior Authorization Summit will be covering CMS’ new ePA standard for Medicare Part D and provide attendees with an understanding of key issues and developments in electronic patient services, including real-time benefit verification, prior authorizations, electronic health records and prescribing services.
