Affirmative Statement Regarding Incentives for Utilization Management Decisions
Health Services is committed to ensuring that our patients/members receive the best and the most appropriate care possible. Utilization management decision making is based only on appropriateness of care and evidence of coverage. Health Services does not directly or indirectly reward practitioners or other individuals for issuing denials of coverage, service or care. There are no financial incentives or compensation offered to such individuals, as utilization management decision-makers, to encourage underutilization of services.
