Clinical Reviewers

Join Our National Clinical Reviewer Panel

Federal, state and private entities rely on IPRO to provide clinical reviews. Due to an increasing number of cases and the introduction of new technology and new treatment modalities, additional well-trained individuals are needed. IPRO conducts clinical review in the following areas:

Medicare – beneficiary reviews, quality of care reviews and utilization review;
Medicaid – state case referrals, quality of care reviews and utilization review;
External Review - review of appeals for care/payment denied by insurance companies.

To be considered for IPRO’s Clinical Reviewer Network, you must:

  • Hold a current, non-restricted license in a U.S. state or territory;
  • Be certified by a specialty board of the American Board of Medical Specialties;
  • Be actively engaged in the practice of medicine and maintain active hospital privileges;
  • Be covered by malpractice insurance.

In addition, proof of academic appointments and publication of your work may be required.

IPRO guarantees its clients the highest possible level of quality, objectivity and consistency in medical review. Once assigned a case to review, the Clinical Reviewer is expected to render an accurate, impartial decision as to whether the service(s) provided to the patient were medically necessary and appropriate. The rationale for the decision must be documented in writing based on accepted clinical guidelines and issued within the time frame specified. The quality of a reviewer’s work is monitored for all external appeal cases and on a quarterly basis for Medicare and Medicaid.
