Prior authorization and step therapy requirements impair treatment, derail medication schedules and severely impact the delivery of healthcare.
For both patients and physicians, these confusing insurance company bureaucratic obstacles are negatively impacting healthcare outcomes.
The Michigan State Senate has proposed Senate Bill 612 which would address the concerns of the patient and provider communities. We believe this bill would greatly improve healthcare delivery for Michigan families.
Please take a moment to contact your legislators. Let them know that direct patient care is paramount and insurance red tape should not impede treatment. The American Osteopathic Association has joined with the Michigan Osteopathic Association in an effort to let Michigan lawmakers know that the issues surrounding prior authorization insurance requirements need to be addressed.
