Everybody hates having to obtain prior authorization for prescriptions, but especially clinicians who do the work for free. Since they make money by selling the drug, I propose the pharmacy pay the clinician a percentage, say 30%, if the payer approves reimbursement.
Plaintiffs’ lawyers get contingency fees when they win a case, nothing if they lose. Why not apply the same principle to prior authorization? Give the clinician a financial incentive to get that approval, and make the patient happy, too.
