In an effort to improve transparency in the pre-authorization approval and decline
rates by health plans, Delaware law (Title 18, Subchapter V of the Delaware
Code) now requires the submission of pre-authorization data to Delaware Health
Information Network (DHIN) at least twice a year.
Health insurers, health benefit plans and health service corporations will be
required to report de-identified statistics regarding pre-authorization
approvals, denials and appeals in the specified format [linked below] to DHIN no
later than February 28, 2018.
