Non-Medical Switching Reform Bill Nears Introduction

posted: May 20, 2019

Legislation to reform non-medical switching practices is expected to be filed by Representative Scott Lipps (R) in the coming weeks.  The legislation seeks to prohibit switches for those covered by a health benefit plan and in the Medicaid Program. OAR holds that patients who are stable on their course of treatment should remain on those therapies unless there is a compelling medical reason to change their treatment.

OAR will continue to be a lead on this effort and plans to keep membership apprised of how the legislation progresses.
