Most medical care paid for by private or public health insurance undergoes some form of administrative review to determine the appropriateness of proposed medical care. That means almost every American enrolled in a private or government funded health benefit plan is affected by how this type of review is administered.

URAC developed the first Health Utilization Management (UM) Review Standards to ensure that organizations conducting utilization review followed a process that was clinically sound and respected patients’ and providers’ rights while giving payers’ reasonable guidelines to follow. Today, URAC is the undisputed leader in Utilization Management Accreditation and Certification.

This workshop includes:
  • URAC Overview and AccreditNet Process
  • Core Standards
  • Health Utilization Management Standards
Program Objectives:
  • Understand the accreditation standards
  • Determine what is needed to meet the intent of the standards
  • Determine the documentation that is needed to submit with the application
