*MDHHS Announcement*

Michigan’s new Prior Authorization (PA) law, signed into law last year by Governor Gretchen Whitmer, took effect June 1, 2023. The new law includes a requirement for health insurers and health care providers to review and submit PAs online, faster PA processing timelines, and new peer review and clinical validity requirements. The law also puts in place new transparency requirements, including a requirement for health insurers to notify contracted health care providers of any new or amended PA requirement or restriction prior to the requirement or restriction taking effect. These changes only apply to commercial insurance policies regulated by the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS), and do not affect Medicaid, Medicare, Medicare Advantage, or self-funded health plans. For more information about the new law, visit the DIFS’ Prior Authorization FAQ page.

*Priority Health Announcement*

Verify your providers’ information with BetterDoctor, NPPES 

In the coming weeks, your provider offices can expect to hear from BetterDoctor as they work to verify the provider information in Find A Doc, our online provider directory. This quarterly outreach process will be familiar to many of your providers because we do this today with another vendor. Learn more about BetterDoctor. 

What if the information BetterDoctor shares is wrong? 

Provider offices should submit updates for any incorrect information through prism. Or if your organization has a delegated arrangement with us, make changes through your existing process. Find more information on reporting provider changes

Don’t forget to check NPPES 

Don’t forget to review your providers’ National Provider Identifier (NPI) data in the National Plan & Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) as soon as possible.
