3.15.2016 Review process versus review outcome Does the type of review (i.e., medical necessity, benefit or other) determine if a denial is included in the file-review universe for UM 4, Element H (UM 4F in UM-CR and MBHO)?

No. The outcome (reason for the denial) determines which files are included. If the decision is not made on the basis of medical necessity, but on the basis of a benefit or an administrative limitation, the file is included in the scope of UM 4, Element H (UM 4F in UM-CR and MBHO).
