Can’t answer for the AARP just a bit more info.

 

Kaiser Health News 03/14/2023 - Feds move to Rein in Prior Authorization . . . . .

Just for info - however I did want to give some additional info on the 1st patient described in the article. The one that needed imaging of her lungs.

As a preventative care - Medicare covers at no OOP cost, a Low Dose CT scan annually for those who have smoked for years - don’t know why the doc and the patient didn’t know this. Guess it is just part of the system that we have - “nobody told me” -

Medicare.gov - Lung Cancer Screening

Otherwise, the articles speaks for itself.
