LANSING— Michigan Physicians will testify during Tuesday’s Senate Insurance Committee hearing on Senate Bills 429 and 430, bipartisan legislation that improves patients’ access to the best care by creating a universal prior authorization form for prescription drugs. The bills will cut red tape and bureaucracy and will speed the delivery of health care.
While most prior authorization forms are very similar, over 150 different insurance companies and health plans operating in Michigan each use their own unique forms, creating significant paperwork and bureaucratic red tape that delays the delivery of quality health care and limits the amount of time physicians and their staffs can spend directly with patients, addressing their health care needs.
