New Compliance Standards For Utilization Review
The Maryland Parity Project reports that beginning this year any insurer who wishes to have their utilization review policies, procedures, and criteria accredited by the Utilization Review Accrediting Commission (URAC) will need to demonstrate compliance with the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act. Consumers insured by URAC-accreditated plans can file complaints about non-compliance with URAC at https://www.urac.org/consumers. MPS member, Steven R. Daviss, MD, Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center, serves as a member of the URAC Health Standards Committee.
