Yes, absolutely. So that's something that we work really hard with our utilization management team on we want to make sure that they have all the information available, because they really are kind of clicking those clinical boxes that says whether something should or shouldn't be supported.

So when they're when they're putting in that prior authorization information that they have everything they need to make the most appropriate selections, so that then there's less of a holdup, or denials, or things that have to go to peer-to-peer. We want it to be as smooth of a process as possible.
