    Dear Chairman Blumenthal and Ranking Member Johnson,

    We write today to thank you for holding your May 17 hearing titled “Examining Health Care Denials and Delays in Medicare Advantage” and to urge you to continue your oversight of Medicare Advantage plans, particularly regarding their use of prior authorization and other utilization management tools that inappropriately delay and deny medically necessary care.

    The Regulatory Relief Coalition (RRC), a group of national physician specialty organizations representing thousands of physicians throughout the United States, was established to advocate for regulatory burden reduction to ensure that health insurers’ policies are not a barrier to timely and equitable access to care for the patients our members serve. To this end, our coalition is advancing legislative and regulatory changes to ensure that Medicare Advantage (MA) plans serve our nation’s seniors.
