Prior Authorization – Active Legislation

Prior authorization policies require a health care provider or an insurance plan enrollee to obtain approval from the insurer or its pharmacy benefit manager before the plan will cover the cost of a health care product or service. This practice can delay access to life-saving treatments and can be applied in a manner that is inconsistent with medical standards of care.

States have introduced legislation to address the prior authorization process. Please click on the map below for state-specific information on legislation introduced this session.
