Clinical Utilization Review Board
The Clinical Utilization Review Board (CURB) was established by Act 146 Sec.
C34. 33 V.S.A. chapter 19, subchapter 6 during the 2010 legislative session.
The Department of Vermont Health Access (DVHA) was tasked to create the CURB
to examine existing medical services, emerging technologies, and relevant
evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and make recommendations to DVHA
regarding coverage, unit limitations, place of service, and appropriate medical necessity of services in the state’s Medicaid programs.
The CURB is comprised of 10 members with diverse medical experience,
appointed by the Governor upon recommendation of the Commissioner of the
Department of Vermont Health Access (Commissioner). The CURB will solicit
additional input as needed from individuals with expertise in areas of
relevance to the Board’s deliberations. The Medical Director of DVHA serves as the State’s liaison to CURB.
