Drug Utilization Review Board

The Drug Utilization Review (DUR) Board serves in an advisory capacity to the Department of Health Care Policy & Financing and makes recommendations regarding drug utilization, educational interventions, and application of standards. The DUR Board also provides recommendations to the Department regarding prior authorization criteria for a wide range of drug classes and medications.

Physicians and pharmacists are being recruited on a continuous basis to fill positions on the Colorado DUR Board. If you are interested in learning more about these professional opportunities, send an inquiry to Jeff Taylor (jeffrey.taylor@state.co.us) or Julia Rawlings (julia.rawlings@state.co.us). If there are no Board openings at the time you apply, the Department will keep your information on file and may contact you in the future regarding your interest in DUR Board openings as they arise.
