Medically Necessary Treatment is defined in statute 440.13(1)(l) as:

  • Any medical service or medical supply which is used to identify or treat an illness or injury, is appropriate to the patient's diagnosis and status of recovery, and is consistent with the location of service, the level of care provided, and applicable practice parameters.
  • The service should be widely accepted among practicing providers, based on scientific criteria, and be determined to be reasonably safe.
  • The service must not be of an experimental, investigative, or research nature.
