Submit Your Prior Authorization Data!

Having difficulties getting procedures approved? Yes! 

Please take a moment to tell us via ACC's web-based prior authorization tool (PARTool)!
 
Do your PART to improve the prior authorization process by recording incorrectly denied or difficult requests through  ACC's PARTool.
 
The data collected helps the College determine overall prior authorization and test substitution trends by insurer and better understand problematic areas of the process including time burdens, test substitution and peer-to-peer reviews.
 
The observed trends will be shared with insurers, vendors, state legislators and insurance officials to engage them in ACC's efforts to reduce the burden of prior authorization and return attention to direct patient interaction.
 
Practices can submit through a simple online form at ACC.org/PARTool.
