Clinical Practice Guidelines
The practice guidelines included on this website are not intended to be required treatment protocols. Physicians and other health professionals must rely on their own expertise in evaluating and treating patients. Practice guidelines are not a substitute for the best professional judgment of physicians and other health professionals. Behavioral health guidelines may include commentary developed by our behavioral health committees.
Further, while we consult authoritative sources in the development of these guidelines, the practice guideline may differ in some respects from the sources cited. With respect to the issue of coverage, each patient should review his or her Policy or Certificate and Schedule of Benefits for details concerning benefits, procedures and exclusions before receiving treatment. The practice guidelines do not supersede the Policy or Certificate and Schedule of Benefits.
