As patients continue to navigate the evolving healthcare system, many questions arise around coverage benefits, patient eligibility, out-of-pocket obligations and more. Delays in the current benefit investigation/verification process and subsequent submission of paper-based prior authorization requests can lead to harmful delays in patient access to treatment, therapy drop-off and discontinuation of medications.

The industry is clamoring for a more streamlined, standardized and primarily automated approach to coverage determination. As such, CBI’s premier Real-Time Benefit Verification & ePrior Authorization Forum convenes manufacturers, payers, PBMs, physicians and leading service providers to address these challenges and discuss the adoption of ePrior authorization and other emerging electronic patient services/technologies to ultimately ensure prescription access for patients in need.
