All clinical practice guidelines are based on scientific evidence, review of the medical literature, or appropriately established authority, as cited. All recommendations are based on published consensus guidelines and do not favor any particular treatment based solely on cost considerations.
The recommendations for care are suggested as guides for making clinical decisions. Clinicians and their patients must work together to develop individual treatment plans that are tailored to the specific needs and circumstances of each patient.
Molina Healthcare reviews and revises guidelines at least every two years and more frequently as clinical evidence is updated. Once the guidelines have been reviewed and modified as needed by a dedicated Quality Improvement Committee, Molina Healthcare providers will be notified of any changes and updates by fax and/or mail.
To request a copy of any guideline, please contact Molina's Quality Improvement Department at 1-888-562-5442 ext. 147181.
