Tell Congress: Americans have a right to timely access to treatment!


Americans across the country are experiencing significant delays in their access to care due to time-consuming and often unnecessary prior authorization requirements from their health insurance companies. Patients who have spent hard-earned dollars on insurance premiums suddenly find themselves unable to receive necessary medical treatment due to these onerous insurer policies.

The process of prior authorization as it currently stands is overused and inefficient. I urge you to work towards a solution to this problem that will reduce the burdens on both patients and physicians. 


The Prior Authorization and Utilization Management Reform Principles created by a coalition representing physicians, medical groups, pharmacists, hospitals, and patients outlines key changes needed to protect patients' access to timely care and reduce administrative hassles for health care professionals. We urge you to review the Principles and include these important concepts in prior authorization reform legislation. Americans have a right to timely access to treatment!

Call to Action:

Please read this letter/article from Missouri State Representative Mike Moon HERE


He is requesting the Missouri governor to pay attention to the facts and the science about PMPs and to not enact it in Missouri.  He is urging EVERYONE to call or email the Missouri Governors office in support of his suggestions.


This amazing state Representative believes that we should allow Doctors to treat their patients without over-reach and is asking for those protections. 


Let’s all encourage the Governors office to turn Missouri into a model state for treating pain patients!
