I thought I was doing pretty well keeping up all of the medication refills, only to be "slapped" in the face with a bunch of prior authorizations this year. Since the beginning of January, it has been one thing after another.
Some things I have learned for next year:
1. Put more things on the calendar of when the prior auth's need to be submitted so nothing is delayed.
2. start prior auth 30 days before next refill or next shipment is needed
3.. Be very specific in the LMN. I am going to obtain copies of what was sent this year. The ones sent out this year worked quite well.
4. Create a specific binder just for LMN's and Prior Auth's.
What things have you learned this year dealing with the insurance company that will help you "battle" things next year?
