Wednesday, May 27, 2015  
Share |

The Joint Finance Committee approved the transfer of prior authorization staff from the Department of Health Services Office of Inspector General to the Division of Medicaid Services. If the Governor approves the measure the transfer would be effective March 31, 2016. WSHA Prior Authorization ad hoc committee has worked diligently on several measures to reform the current prior authorization process, include removing prior authorization from the Office of Inspector General.

Thank you to the WSHA Medicaid Prior Authorization ad hoc committee for their ongoing time, work and advocacy: Missy Kueht-Becker, Julie Behrman, Charity Brown, Julie Gamradt, Linda Hansen, Sue Lethlean, Kathy Marsceau, Stephanie Olive, Betty Zientara and Ramie Zelenkova.
