Clinical Practice Guidelines

The organization uses local and national Medicare coverage guidelines, Health Plan partner Clinical Guidelines (depending on the LOB) for Medical necessity determinations or, if none applicable, will use Apollo and MCG Clinical Guidelines to support benefit determinations. These guidelines are based on appropriateness and medical necessity standards; each guideline is current and has references from the peer-reviewed medical literature, and other authoritative resources such as CMS Medicare. 

For any medical necessity Recommendation of Denial, the Medical Director shall attempt to contact the requesting provider for peer-to-peer consultation. Applied Clinical Guidelines are available in both electronic and hard copy format. If a provider would like a copy of the guidelines, they may contact their assigned Provider Relations Representative and a copy will be provided.

Affirmative Statement about UM Decision Making

All clinical staff that makes Utilization Management (UM) decisions is required to adhere to the following principles:

  • UM decision making is based only on appropriateness of care and service and existence of coverage.
  • The organization does not specifically reward practitioners or other individuals for issuing denials of coverage.
  • Financial incentives for UM decision makers do not encourage decisions that result in underutilization.
  • Decisions about hiring, promoting or terminating practitioners or other staff are not based on the likelihood or perceived likelihood that they support or tend to support benefit denials.
