AFP: Patients Won with Legislative Override of Certificate of Need Board’s Excessive Regulation on Cancer Therapy

Oct 30, 2019 by AFP

Lansing, Mich. – Patients won today: That was the message Americans for Prosperity-Michigan issued on the heels of the passage of a Joint Resolution that overturns excessive regulations placed on cancer immunotherapy by the unelected and unaccountable Certificate of Need (CON) board. Annie Patnaude, state director of Americans for Prosperity-Michigan, issued the following statement: 

“Thanks to the courageous work of our leaders in the legislature, unelected unaccountable bureaucrats will not be allowed to get in the way of life-saving treatment for cancer patients.

“Patients won today. The legislature’s bold action keeps decisions about when and where to seek treatment in the right place—between patients and their physicians.

“This unprecedented move by lawmakers moves us a bit closer to our vision for a healthcare system that reduces costs and improves access for all Michiganders.”
