Know that AGA is in this fight for the long haul.

When payors roll back policies, it is often after the policy is in place, when patients and providers together advocate for change.

Here’s the latest:

USA Today did extensive background interviews with AGA leaders and patient advocates and filed a strong, balanced story, leading with a Crohn’s disease patient’s experience. Read the article: Doctors and patients are worried this large health insurer’s new policy will delay care.

Inside Health Policy, an influential subscription publication read by regulators in Washington, wrote an extensive story this week on the topic based on interviews with AGA.

We must come together to share how prior authorization has detrimental effects on health and patient safety.

Learn about AGA’s #StopUHCPriorAuth campaign and how you and your patients can share your story once the policy goes into effect June 1.
