Utilization Review (UR) Denial for workers' compensation
According to the California Department of Industrial Relations, a Utilization Review (UR) is the process used by employers or claims administrators to review treatment to determine if it is medically necessary. This program is used to decide whether or not to approve medical treatment recommended by a physician.
A Utilization Review is required for every claim in which medical treatment is sought through the workers' compensation system. A UR will determine the most cost-effective and appropriate method of treatment for an injured employee.
