    When conducting a review, the reviewer determines an indication for performing a procedure or intervention is not listed. What should the reviewer do?

    • A.

      Deny the request

    • B.

      Use clinical judgement and approve the request

    • D.

      Choose a different indication

    Correct Answer
    C. Document the appropriate clinical information and send for secondary medical review
    Explanation
    When conducting a review, if the reviewer determines that an indication for performing a procedure or intervention is not listed, they should document the appropriate clinical information and send it for a secondary medical review. This is necessary to ensure that all relevant information is considered and to obtain a second opinion from another medical professional. It allows for a more thorough evaluation of the case and helps in making an informed decision regarding the request.

    Expanding and Collapsing Criteria Criteria points may stand alone or be hierarchically embedded in a decision tree. You expand the decision tree by clicking the plus (+) sign to show the underlying criteria points. You collapse the decision tree by clicking the minus (-) sign.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In decision trees, criteria points can be organized in a hierarchical structure. This means that criteria points can have sub-criteria points nested within them. To view the underlying criteria points, you can expand the decision tree by clicking the plus (+) sign. On the other hand, if you want to hide the sub-criteria points and simplify the view, you can collapse the decision tree by clicking the minus (-) sign. Therefore, the statement "Expanding and collapsing criteria points in a decision tree is possible" is true.

This means that the reviewer should evaluate each service individually, considering the specific requirements and criteria for that particular service. By doing so, the reviewer can ensure that each service is assessed accurately and appropriately, taking into account the unique aspects and considerations associated with each discipline.
