SB 553 Update

SB 553 Had A Hearing in the House

The hearing on SB 553 was well attended today. Everyone from NH who spoke supported this bill. The MCO’s were allowed to speak, and were lukewarm in their support. Families spoke about the fact that the system for Step 1 is not working well, and their frustration with continually having to do prior authorizations on the same medications.

Thank you to those who wrote and provided testimony. The Health and Human Services and Elderly Affairs Committee chair said that they had heard the message loud and clear. They will vote in Executive Session and report to the full House in a week or so.
