DUR Board Overview

The Mississippi Division of Medicaid’s Drug Utilization Review (DUR) Board is a quality assurance body which seeks to assure appropriate drug therapy to include optimal beneficiary outcomes and appropriate education for providers and beneficiaries. The Board reviews utilization of drug therapy and evaluates the long-term success of the treatments.

Mississippi Evidence-Based DUR Initiative

Working closely with Mississippi Medicaid staff, the Mississippi Evidence-Based DUR Initiative (MS-DUR) performs retrospective drug utilization review (DUR) functions through claims review and analysis. This important work is vital to the activities of the DUR Board.

In addition to supporting Mississippi Medicaid and the DUR Board, MS-DUR’s work also results in the production of many research reports, clinical presentations, and publications. Please visit the MS-DUR website for access to this important information, as well as helpful resources for Medicaid providers.
