Financial Compensation – Providers Make the Decisions

Coventry’s utilization management program helps ensure that our members receive medically necessary healthcare services in the most cost-effective setting according to their benefit package. Working with the member andthe physician, we evaluate services for medical appropriateness, timeliness and cost. Our decisions are based exclusively on appropriateness of care and service and the existence of coverage. We do not compensate or reward practitioners, employees or other individuals for denying coverage or care. In addition, Coventry does not use incentives to reward inappropriate restrictions of care.

New Technologies

Doctors and health care companies continuously develop new technologies. This can include anything from a new procedure to a new way to use a device. The Plan has processes on how to review and judge new technologies.

When we find out about new technology, we carefully review the latest information. We may also ask experts for their opinions. We compare the information with well-known standards and base all of our decisions on making sure you have the right care and services.

Referrals and Prior Authorizations

Refer to your Evidence of Coverage for information on referrals and prior authorizations.
