NOTE: Any Clinical Guideline included in this standard MPTAC notification is only effective for GA if included on the GA Standard Adopted Clinical Guideline List unless there is a Group-specific review requirement in which case it will be considered ‘Adopted’ for that group only and for the specific type of review required. Additionally, as part of the Pre-Payment Review Program for commercial or Federal Employee Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) plans, Clinical Guidelines approved by Medical Policy and Technology Assessment Committee (MPTAC) but not included in the GA Standard Adopted Clinical Guideline List may be used to review a provider’s claims when a provider’s billing practices are not consistent with other providers in terms of frequency or in some other manner or for provider education and are “Adopted” for those purposes.
