Medical Utilization Evaluation


The medical utilization evaluation is a process through which patients who are medically insured are able to get the required care from the necessary medical facilities. There are certain standards that have to be met. There will be a lot of reviewing and certification done before receiving the medical care. However, one must note that by gaining medical certification it does not guarantee treatment. The medical insurance does cover only certain benefits and these are only received if the patient meets the eligibility criteria.

The evaluation is a rigorous process and needs to be carefully done so that the patient receives the right treatment and does not cheat the medical facility or the insurance company. Likewise, the evaluation also helps the patient secure treatment fairly. These will include CAT scan, MRI, private home health car, nursing home care, hospice care services and more. The patient must inform the medical insurance company in advance for the evaluation to take place.
