Be Our Guest! Introducing GUEST PASS

By Dan Rubin, CEO

In our latest feature update, we’ve just made our free service even easier to access for physician practices.  Introducing GUEST PASS, which allows any prescriber to use PARx’s Prior Authorization Support System (PASS), without having to go through the registration process.

GUEST PASS is an excellent solution for any provider currently using inefficient PA submission methods, who wants to see the benefits of PASS but without an up-front commitment. This is a significantly growing problem for practices, as evidenced by a May 2017 MGMA Stat poll which found 86% of respondents had seen an increase in PA requirements during the past year.  Some of these prescribers may not be aware of the difference PASS has made for many providers, their staff and in the end, their patients.

GUEST PASS can be easily accessed by following these simple steps:

  1. Go to www.parxsolutions.com, and select the Submit a PA option.
  2. From the Log-In screen, click on Not Registered? Continue as a Guest User.
  3. Enter the provider’s NPI number, then follow instructions to complete and submit a PA.

Once submitted, the PARx support staff will manage the PA on behalf of the provider. Providers will receive an email with a reference code allowing them to check on the status of the submitted PA, and they will be notified when the outcome is determined.

Practices can opt to continue using GUEST PASS or they can elect to become registered users by answering a few short questions, creating a username and password, and using PARx’s electronic signature feature to create an account that is immediately available for use.  Registered users have the benefit of being able to check the status of all submitted PAs, as well as the ability to upload chart notes to PA requests, and can easily enroll additional providers to their practice account.

GUEST PASS (along with our new, easier than ever registration process) opens the door for more prescribers to experience the benefits of PASS, thereby helping more patients receive their prescribed therapy, and improving practice management.

 So what are you waiting for? Be our guest!
