Acentra Health is a nationally recognized provider of healthcare management solutions in both state and federal government as well as commercial clients. We provide prior authorization, utilization and specialty review, and case and disease management services.

To accomplish our objectives, Acentra Health must have qualified peer reviewers who meet the following federal regulations:

  • Must be a doctor of medicine, osteopathy, dentistry, podiatry, or optometry, or another individual who is authorized under Federal or State law to practice medicine, surgery, osteopathy, dentistry, podiatry, or optometry
  • Have a current state license
  • Are board-certified
  • Must either be engaged in active practice in the State or be military physicians who actively practice in a military or Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) healthcare facility. Active practice means that the physician usually practices (on a routine basis) a minimum of 20 hours per week. Active practice must also include active staff privileges in a healthcare facility on a regular basis. There are some exceptions to this requirement, notably that emergency department physicians and dentists who do not have admitting privileges in an acute care hospital can meet the requirement of active staff privileges as defined in this regulation.
