Health Can’t Wait. Contact your Representative and urge them to vote YES on SB 247.
Every day, Michigan’s health care providers strive to help their patients.
It’s what we do. It’s what we’re trained to do.
And every day, there are providers across the state who are forced to set the needs of their patient aside and wait. Wait to move forward with prescribed treatments. Wait to administer potentially lifesaving care.
With far too much frequency, insurance companies misuse prior authorization red tape and bureaucracy to delay—and sometimes flat out deny—patients access to the treatment and medicine they have been prescribed; treatment and medicine we as providers know they need.
Thankfully, we finally have an opportunity to address this crisis, and it comes in the form of Senate Bill 247.
Senate Bill 247 would bring new transparency, fairness and clinical validity requirements to the prior authorization processes insurers use to bog down patient care, ensuring patients throughout the state receive timely coverage decisions, and the care they need.
It’s what’s right, it’s what’s fair, and it’s what our patients need and deserve.
Please contact your Representative today and urge them to vote YES on SB 247.
