Simplify the paperwork



Published: Tue, April 2, 2013 @ 12:00 a.m.

The Mining Journal, Marquette, Mich.: It’s hard to find very much wrong with a pair of bills approved by the Michigan state Senate and House of Representatives that would, among other things, create a universal form that doctors could use when patients need prior authorization for coverage of prescription drugs.

Legislation supporters claim, rightfully we believe, that some forms are too long and each insurer uses a different form, creating a great deal of extra work for health care providers, according to The Associated Press. In addition, the bills ... would make the state develop a standard methodology for doctors when insurers require prior authorization, AP stated.

We don’t see a downside to streamlining an administrative system that, on its best day, is cumbersome and unwieldy.
