Coverage Determinations and Utilization Management
Coverage Determinations and Utilization Management

MCNA uses evidence-based clinical guidelines from nationally recognized authorities to make decisions in our Utilization Management (UM) program. Specifically, we review any request for the prior authorization of services to determine if members are eligible for benefits and whether the service they request is a medically necessary covered benefit under the dental plan. We also determine if the service to be delivered is consistent with established guidelines.

We don't pay or reward practitioners, employees or other individuals for denying coverage or care.

To enhance our network providers' experience, MCNA offers peer-to-peer consultations with our clinical reviewers. The peer-to-peer process enables our participating providers to discuss clinical determinations, including ...
