Welcome to Arizona Association of Chiropractic

The AAC's signature legislation this year, SB 1166 sponsored by Senator David Farnsworth which clarifies (in blue)  D.  A health care insurer who utilizes the services of an outside utilization review agent is responsible for the utilization review agent's acts that are within the scope of the written and filed utilization review plan, INCLUDING THE ADMINISTRATION OF ALL PATIENT CLAIMS PROCESSED BY THE UTILIZATION REVIEW AGENT ON BEHALF OF THE HEALTH CARE INSURER. This bill is now headed to the Governor's Office for signature.  We thank Senator Farnsworth for his support spearheading this important clarification language on behalf of the AAC.

*This essentially means that health care insurance companies must accept responsibility for how their third party administrators and/or their agents process patient claims.
