UnitedHealthcare uses evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) from nationally recognized sources. Annually, the Medical Technology Assessment Committee (MTAC) meets to review these guidelines.
The changes in the guidelines from year 2021 to 2022 include:
|Acute myocardial infarction with and without ST elevation|
|Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)|
|Sickle cell disease (SCD)|
|Stable ischemic heart disease|
Visit UHCprovider.com, select Policies and Protocols and then Clinical Guidelines on the left-hand side of the page to view our current CPGs.
