Prior Authorization Initiatives

In 2012, CMS launched a prior authorization process for certain power mobility devices in seven demonstration states (California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, and Texas). Since implementing this demonstration, CMS has observed a decrease in expenditures for power mobility devices. CMS will leverage this success by creating a prior authorization process for certain non-emergent services under Medicare.
