The Drug Utilization Board (DUR Board) reviews and approves drug use criteria and standards for both prospective and retrospective drug use reviews. It applies these criteria and standards in the application of DUR activities, reviews and reports the results of the drug use reviews, and recommends and evaluates the educational intervention programs.
It was established in Section 4401, 1927 (g) of the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1990 (OBRA '90) in which it was mandated that the Agency develop and adopt regulations effective January 1, 1993, for a drug use review program for covered outpatient drugs.
The Act also requires the DUR Board to prepare an annual report regarding the DUR program for the Deputy Secretary for Florida Medicaid.
