Effective immediately, participating Minnesota hospitals now have 7 business days to request a peer-to-peer review of determinations related to acute inpatient level of care and length of stay.
This new 7-day time frame is available for all in network hospitals in Minnesota and applies to decisions for UnitedHealthcare® Medicare Advantage or UnitedHealthcare commercial plan members.
When we make a determination, you’ll receive a communication with our decision. That communication will have instructions for requesting a peer-to-peer review.
Follow the instructions in the determination communication if you have questions about a particular decision or criteria.
If you have questions about this new time frame, please contact a UnitedHealthcare market chief medical officer:
