Website Launch Process - Post It Notes for Wireframes

Microsite Launch

In November 2020 the Simplify Prior Authorization white paper was introduced at the Benefits Breakfast Club and the Prior Authorization Q&A Blog was developed to respond to questions and clarify important issues like payer autonomy, funding of the initiative and the benefits of simplifying the current prior authorization process.

We promised to give you updates and further insights as we progress. We are pleased to announce that the Simplify Prior Authorization microsite is live and we encourage you explore it.

Here’s what you’ll find there now:

  • /Access to the Simplify Prior Authorization white paper
  • /A summary of white paper findings
  • /A summary of white paper recommendations
  • /A podcast section that will include interviews with steering committee members, sponsors, key opinion leaders and advisors
