A Medication Prior Authorization Pilot Program in Primary Care Practices

New England Quality Care Alliance, a physician network, implemented a medication prior authorization pilot program in January 2015. The purpose of the program is to alleviate physician and practice administrative burden and to improve the quality of care. The program uses Certified Pharmacy Technicians, under the direct supervision of a clinical pharmacist, to submit medication PAs on behalf of physicians.
