Datapoint: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Will Cut Back on Prior Authorization

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan on Sept. 7 said it will be cutting about 20% of its current prior authorization requirements, joining UnitedHealthcare and Cigna Healthcare, which have both made similar moves in recent weeks. “As part of our commitment to promoting optimal health and affordability of care for members and employers, we’re moving forward with changes to further improve the experience for both our members and clinical colleagues,” James D. Grant, M.D., senior vice president and chief medical officer at BCBS Michigan, said in a statement. The Blues affiliate is the largest insurer in its home state, serving 4,116,721 members, about 40% of Michigan’s insured population.
