AMA: Latest HHS Information re: Change Healthcare

The American Medical Association (AMA) released the following update on March 26:

Last night the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) distributed these resources to assist physicians, pharmacists, and hospitals, with the aftermath of the Change Healthcare cybersecurity attacks.

The AMA told HHS on a number of occasions that physicians were having difficulty securing information from health insurers about the availability of assistance with payments, flexibilities from administrative requirements, and additional contact information for troubleshooting due to the Change Healthcare cybersecurity attacks. Other interested parties raised similar issues. HHS responded by assembling the linked resources from health insurers. Please note the HHS’ cover letter points out that the resource document contains a national contact person for each plan, though HHS urges physicians, pharmacists, and hospitals, to reach out first to their health insurer’s regional contact. If these contacts do not respond to inquiries, please contact [email protected].

The AMA will continue to raise physician concerns to the Biden administration and payers. For more information, please visit the AMA webpage dedicated to this topic.
