Meeting with American Specialty Health 

I have been a member of the professional affairs healthcare advisory committee for the last two years these meetings over this time have become more robust and created a lot of generative discussion. The meeting this month has shown great strides in improving their online and paper form for data collection that is now focusing more on outcomes and functional deficits to improve authorization process. They continue to work with us on improving ways to streamline the authorization process.  We also discussed adding specialty care areas in the future on lymphedema and women's health if you have any other specialty areas you would like us to look at please let me know. ASH was very excited and hope that all members are utilizing the APTA's UM toolkit which can be found on the APTA website at This toolkit provides a number of ways to improve your ability to receive authorizations in a timely manner. As a reminder for those using the paper forms through ash you want to submit no more than five pieces of supporting documentation.  If you were having issues using Ashlink or their paper forms to receive authorization please let me know.
