General Information

The Utilization Review (UR) Department is responsible for determining the medical necessity for services based upon an injured worker’s clinical condition. Our staff utilizes evidence-based clinical guidelines from national and state authorities to guide utilization management involving prior authorization, concurrent review and retrospective review. The Utilization Review Guide outlines treatment requiring approval and is updated semi-annually, with the information available on the website.

  • It is the responsibility of the medical provider who provides or prescribes medical treatment, equipment, or supplies to submit requests.
  • Final Liability and payment decisions are the responsibility of the claims adjuster managing the claim.
