The TX NMS Coalition members seek:
To pass legislation that supports patients by further preventing health insurance plans from making benefit, coverage, utilization management or access switches that result in negative impact on a patient’s health.
To preserve the relationship between providers and patients to make treatment decisions and to ensure that changes to treatment plans are made for health reasons and not for non-medical reasons or without medical rationale.
