UniCare specifically excludes coverage for services or supplies it determines to be investigational and/or not medically necessary. The UniCare State Indemnity Plan processes claims in accordance with these determinations, which are indicated in our medical policies and clinical UM guidelines.
The UniCare State Indemnity Plan follows all medical policies and certain adopted clinical UM guidelines. These policies are updated quarterly, so please check back periodically for changes.
As part of UniCareís Prepayment Review program, clinical guidelines approved by the Medical Policy and Technology Assessment Committee, but not included in this standard adopted list, may be used to review a providerís claims. This may occur when a providerís billing practices are not consistent with other providers in terms of frequency or in some other manner. It may also occur when there is a need for provider education. In such instances, the clinical guidelines used for review of these providers are ďadoptedĒ for those indicated purposes.
