About URAC's Health Utilization Management Accreditation Program

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. In 1990, 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 payors reasonable guidelines to follow.
