      • Standards of Obligation: Provide high-quality services, consistent and in alignment with established and widely accepted standards and principles of medical practice. This Agreement does not override the common law rules governing the interpretation of established and widely accepted standards and principles of medical practice.
        • Treatment Authorization: Except for emergency and primary care services, the Physician must obtain prior written authorization from the respective Institution/Facility CEO/CME or designee, as per the Utilization Management Plan. All necessary forms related to the treatment of patients/youth must be completed and submitted. Authorization for essential services must be documented in the patient/youth medical record before considering non-emergency specialty treatment, consultations, or diagnostic procedures not specified in a prior authorization form.

Physicians shall agree that any excluded healthcare service or treatment required for pre-existing conditions will be provided only in cases where the condition has become aggravated to a significant threat to the patient's/youth's current health. Treatment is permissible if failure to provide it would result in morbidity and/or mortality. The appeal for such treatment must be recognized as medically necessary.

Physicians conducting clinical reviews must possess the necessary skills to prepare written clinical review documents.
