WCRI released a first-of-its-kind survey-based national inventory of medical treatment guidelines and system features that help enforce compliance with medical treatment guidelines across states. The study highlights some of the key patterns that cut across the states. It also highlights several key policy variables that are most likely to influence compliance with medical treatment guidelines. For each state included in the study, there is a short summary of system features that are related to medical treatment guidelines, utilization review, and the dispute resolution process. Louisiana’s summary is located on pages 92 and 93.
