PHIMA Student Scholarship Donations and a Chance to WIN!

This past year, we were able to award 2 scholarships to students thanks to our members’ generosity.  For this Giving Tuesday, we are asking for donations to the ‘38 Society: to support PHIMA and the needs of our organization including the student scholarship fund.  Between NOW and end of the year (December 31st), any donations to the ’38 Society will be entered into a raffle to win some prizes.  We appreciate any amount that you can donate to the PHIMA Student Scholarship Fund and look forward to hopefully continuing our traditional raffle at next year’s Annual Conference.

Advocacy in Action:  Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act

ACT NOW! Tell the Senate to Support the Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act The bipartisan "Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act" has recently been introduced in the US Senate. We need your outreach to build support for this important legislation. Prior authorization continues to be the number one administrative burden identified by healthcare providers. In a 2018 report by the US Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of the Inspector General, it was found that Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAOs) overturned 75 percent of their own denials each year. These denials risk patient safety and add burdens to an already overburdened healthcare system. A 2020 survey from the American Medical Association stated that 30 percent of physicians reported that prior authorization requirements have led to a serious adverse event for a patient in their care. This legislation would modernize the way Medicare Advantage plans and healthcare providers use prior authorization, removing unnecessary steps and complications for patients while streamlining administrative processes associated with prior authorization. As an AHIMA member, you are the voice of health information on the Hill. Contact your US Senators and ask them to support this vital legislation. Click here to email your Members of Congress now.
