Utilization Review

Since the advent of utilization review, through either HCOs (Health Care Organizations) in 1992 or SB899 in 2004, California has been a leader in showing the value of a proactive approach to the management of healthcare through utilization management of medical care. The key is to review the proposed treatment plan for:

  • Medical necessity
  • Compliance to state mandated best practices such as ACOEM (American College of Environmental Medicine), or ODGs (Official Disability Guidelines - Work Loss Data Institute) and MDA (Medical Disability Advisor)
  • Reduction in over utilization of physical therapy, chiropractic care and narcotic medications

Timeliness is essential. Adjusters are mandated by law to protect workers from delayed treatment. With the potential for penalties, it is even more essential to maintain the timeframes. Our deadline driven workflow protocol gives RiskSolutions, Inc. 100% adherence to statutory timeframes. This reduces your cost and maintains compliance.

RiskSolutions, Inc. Utilization Review Program includes:

  • Prospective review
  • Concurrent review
  • Retrospective review
  • Peer review
