Work Toward Reducing the Burden of Prior Authorization With ACC’s New PARTool

The ACC is seeking input from practices on incorrectly denied or difficult prior authorization requests via the new web-based prior authorization tool (PARTool). The tool collects data to help the College determine overall prior authorization and test substitution trends, and better understand problematic areas of the prior authorization process, including time burdens, test substitution and peer-to-peer reviews. The College will use the data garnered from responses to the 12-question form to share trends with insurers, prior authorization vendors, state legislators and insurance officials to engage them in working to reduce the burden of prior authorization.
