The advocacy group heads to Michigan's capitol to meet with law makers. Among their many discussions they advocated for SB 247, which amends Chapter 22 of the insurance code to modify and delete provisions requiring prior authorizations requests making it easier for patients to get health care in a more timely manner. SB 247 passed Michigan's senate later that day.
