Prior Authorization Bill Likely Faces More Changes In House Committee

More changes are likely in store for a bill to streamline the prior authorization process that is currently before the House Insurance Committee.

Randy Gardner on Tuesday made clear to the House panel he's willing and open to compromise on the measure (SB 129*), which establishes a timeline for companies to respond to prior authorization requests and would create a web-based system to foster communication between insurers and physicians.
