Here’s what you’ll need to know when covering prior authorization

Every month or so, it seems there’s a horror story about prior authorization. Last month, for example, CNN’s Jen Christensen reported about a teenager in Massachusetts who died of a seizure after being unable to get prior authorization to renew a prescription for her medication.
