MMA Legislative Priorities for 2016
The MMA’s legislative team will focus on the following topics during the 2016 legislative session.
Fix medication prior authorization (PA)
The MMA bill will reduce PA administrative barriers for prescribers, increase disclosure and transparency related to PA, and ensure patients get the drugs they need.
Repeal the provider tax
The 2 percent tax, often called "the sick tax," is scheduled for repeal at the end of 2019. The MMA remains committed to its repeal and will remind legislators in 2016 that it must go away.
Advocate for stronger immunization laws
Minnesota has one of the weakest childhood immunization laws. This session, the MMA wants to completely remove the conscientiously held belief exemption that allows parents to opt-out of the state law to immunize their children, similar to what passed in California in 2015.
