Our final report found that in Arkansas, Medicaid drug utilization review (DUR) procedures were limited to after-the-fact analysis of drug therapy and are not as comprehensive as called for by the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990. Our review showed that about $1.27 million (Federal share $940,594) in cost savings could have been realized for CY 1989 had the State agency established letter DUR procedures.
