Independent Medical Review

Independent medical peer review services, provided by Independent Review Organizations (IROs), are designed to ultimately reduce payor administrative costs and ensure that patients receive proper treatments. Rising healthcare costs affect millions of people daily, and insurers can rely on IROs to help them to control costs and offer affordable coverage.

Defining IRO


NAIRO is an association of URAC-accredited IROs collaborating on issues facing the rapidly changing healthcare and workers’ compensation arena. NAIRO leadership and its member-driven committees track legislative and regulatory developments at the federal and state level, advances in accreditation standards, and emerging themes such as cybersecurity, trust, compliance, and more.
