Update: STEP Therapy

26 Jul 2022 11:00 PM | Katy Monaco (Administrator)

The Senate passed the step therapy bill today. The Senate reinstated the provision requiring insurers to grant or deny a step therapy exception request or an appeal back to 72 hrs. or 24 hrs. if additional delay would result in significant risk to the insured’s health or well-being. The House passed bill sets the time as 3 business days and the next business day. The House and Senate need to reconcile their differences. We have heard that the House will accept the Senate change. It looks like we will see the bill on the governor’s desk by the end of the week.
