Texas Drug Utilization Review Board

The Texas DUR Board is an HHSC advisory committee that meets quarterly in Austin to:

  • Develop recommendations for the Medicaid preferred drug list
  • Suggest clinical prior authorizations on outpatient prescription drugs
  • Recommend educational interventions for Medicaid providers
  • Review drug utilization across the Medicaid program

The board includes physicians and pharmacists who provide services across the entire Medicaid population, as well as one physician and one pharmacist representing the managed care organizations, and one consumer advocate who represents people enrolled in Medicaid.
