Step Therapy Bill

New Jersey Step Therapy Bill

The Dermatological Society of New Jersey is pleased to announce that the New Jersey Legislature has unanimously passed the Step Therapy Bill. The DSNJ worked with both the AAD and MSNJ to strongly advocate for this bill. This bill is important to all medical professionals and patients in the State of New Jersey.

The Step Therapy Bill is a critical step in helping to ensure patients have access to their prescription medications. Health insurers will be required to expeditiously grant a step therapy override determination request if the prescriber deems it medically inappropriate for the patient to go through step therapy requirement.
