Prior Authorization Reform Passes Senate; Say Thanks

Wednesday, April 28, 2021

Please take this opportunity to thank your Senator for passing prior authorization reform. 

“Thanks to today’s action from the Michigan Senate on SB 247, we are one big step closer to the kind of timely care and treatment Michigan patients need and deserve. We applaud the Senate for not only recognizing the value in this legislation, but also moving swiftly in doing their part to see that it becomes law. With this bill now set to move on to the other chamber, we look forward to beginning this process again and hope for the same kind of success in working with members of Michigan’s House of Representatives to pass this meaningful reform benefiting patients and providers throughout the state.”
