15:04 EDTQCOR, UNHUnitedHealth alerts physicians to change in authorization process for Acthar
In a network bulletin intended for health care professionals and facilities, dated January 2013, UnitedHealthcare stated that, effective April 1, 2013, the insurer will implement an "important change in the advanced notification review process for the administration of certain specialty medications covered under the medical benefit," including Questcor's (QCOR) H.P. Acthar gel. Currently it is optional for network physicians prescribing H.P. Acthar to submit for advanced notification prior to the administration of these medications, UnitedHealthcare stated. However, as of April 1, all participating network physicians will be required to submit for prior authorization review and approval prior to administration of Acthar for members with UnitedHealthcare commercial coverage plans, including those members currently on therapy. These requests may be subject to medical necessity review to determine coverage, UnitedHealthcare added. In late day trading, shares of Questcor, which had been higher for much of the session, declined 42c, or 1.57%, to $26.30. Reference Link

10:43 EDTUNHAppeals court bars subsidies in health care law
A three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down part of President Obama's healthcare law by siding today with plaintiffs who argued that the law barred the government from giving subsidies to people in states that chose not to set up their own insurance marketplaces. The appeals court stated, "Because we conclude that the ACA unambiguously restricts the section 36B subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges 'established by the State,' we reverse the district court and vacate the IRSís regulation." Twenty-seven states decided against setting up marketplaces, and another nine states partially opted out, according to the Washington Post.
