Members of the Texas Drug Utilization Review (DUR) Board meet quarterly in Austin to promote safety through an increased review and awareness of outpatient prescribed drugs. Members recommend medical criteria, standards, and educational intervention methods used in Texas Medicaid. The board reviews and approves the therapeutic criteria for prospective and retrospective drug utilization as well as clinical prior authorization criteria. In addition, members also recommend drugs for inclusion in the Medicaid preferred drug list, considering the drug's clinical efficacy, safety, cost-effectiveness, and program benefits.

Please review the written and public testimony procedures prior to submitting information to board members.
