Drug Utilization Review Board

Thank you for your interest in the MO HealthNet Drug Utilization Review (DUR) Board. The DUR Board was created by State Statute 208.175 as required by the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1990.

The Board is charged with review and research of the MO HealthNet Division’s clinical recommendations which are ratified through the Drug Prior Authorization Committee. After review by both advisory groups these recommendations are scheduled for implementation by the Department of Social Services/MO HealthNet Division.

For additional information please see 13 CSR 70-20.300. In addition the Board monitors participant drug use, prescribing and dispensing practices for MO HealthNet providers through retrospective and prospective DUR. Applications to serve on the DUR Board may be made on line at the Governor’s Web site. Nominations for membership are referred for final appointment by the Governor and are subject to Senate confirmation.
