Arkansas BlueCross BlueShield's self-administered medication policy devalues member and provider choice and compromises patients' health.

NICA opposes any policies that aim to move a patient away from their therapy prescribed by their provider to an insurer-preferred therapy for reasons other than health or safety. Arkansas BlueCross BlueShield’s self-administered medication policy would force providers and patients into a one-size-may-fit-some approach which precludes the practice of personalized medicine.

NICA sent letters to the largest employers in Arkansas that utilize BlueCross BlueShield regarding their self-administration policy. You can view those letters below.
