The DUR Board provides evaluation of criteria for drug coverage within the Texas Medicaid program.  These criteria are used in retrospective and prospective drug utilization review, and are based on the compendia and peer reviewed medical literature. Criteria and standards are periodically revised to ensure that they reflect prescribing recommendations of the current compendia and literature.  All files are in PDF format unless otherwise indicated.
