What Happens During a PMUR?
When a child's psychotropic medications fall outside of the Parameters, a STAR Health child and adolescent psychiatrist reviews the child's medical records and talks to the doctor who prescribed the medication.
Sometimes medications are changed. Other times the child keeps taking the medications, even though the medications are outside Parameters because the child's condition is complex and the medication is helping the child. The STAR Health psychiatrist will consult with the prescribing clinician again within 60 to 90 days if the medication regimen remains outside of the Parameters.
