"Paying the Piper"
By: Marcus J. Hopkins, Blogger

In the past two installments of HEAL Blog, we’ve discussed the process of Prior Authorization (PA) procedures for patients whose payers – the organization or company who pays for medical services and treatments – require prerequisite paper work and diagnostic tests as qualifiers for treatment. We’ve followed the process through the initial phase of simply qualifying to qualify on through the actual procedural bureaucracy between prescribing physicians, pharmacists, and payers. This week, we’re going to take a new look at some potential alternative forms of payment – Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs).

I say “new” because, as a rule, HEAL Blog has covered the topic of PAPs several times over the last two years. Relatively recent developments in the world of Patient Assistance and payer relations have warranted a new look at the issue, particularly through a far less rosy lens.
