On October 6, 2021, California Governor Gavin Newson signed into law bill SB535. This bill restricts health insurers from requiring prior authorizations to limit advanced cancer patients’ timely access to biomarker testing. This includes patients with metastatic stage II or IV cancer, including when their cancers progress or recur.

The change in law applies to insurance policies, including those under Medi-Cal managed care plans, which have been issued, amended, or renewed as of July 1, 2000.
