Update from the MMGMA Government Affairs Committee

The MMGMA Government Affairs Committee has been working on a Prior Authorization bill with other associations and practices for the past several months. We appreciate those members who shared stories of patients whose care was impacted by the current cumbersome Prior Authorization process. We are excited to share that the Prior Authorization bill was passed last night with about an hour to spare. The MN House voted 123 – 9 to pass the language of the Senate bill #3204 which can be seen here: Senate Bill 3204. The legislation is effective 1/1/2021.

Thank you to all of our members who shared stories, reached out to your legislators, and worked in other ways to push back against the Prior Authorization process that were unreasonably affecting patient care, as well as clinic and hospital operations.
