We're using updated utilization management criteria for non-behavioral health services starting Aug. 2, 2021

On Aug. 2, 2021, we'll begin using the 2021 InterQual® criteria to make utilization management determinations for non-behavioral health services.

In early July, we'll have links to the updated versions of the modified criteria and local rules on this website, on these pages:

For additional information about these changes, look for articles in the July 2021 issue of The Record and the July-August 2021 issue of BCN Provider News.
