Most Favored Nation Order Released by Michigan Insurance Commissioner

favored nation orderIn what appears to be a strong response to the most favored nation ("MFN")-related lawsuits filed against Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan by the U.S. Department of Justice and Aetna, the Commissioner of the Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation (“OFIR”) issued an Order dated July 18, 2012. The Order prohibits insurers, HMOs, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan from either using or enforcing MFN clauses in their provider contracts unless the MFN clause has been filed with and approved by the OFIR Commissioner.  This prohibition takes effect February 1, 2013.  To read the Order, see the Order posted on the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs webpage.
