What is Utilization Review: Utilization review in a nut shell is reviewing medical records for proper billing and documentation. You are ensuring that healthcare professionals are doing their job correctly and are not abusing the healthcare system. 
What does this job entail: This career has no direct patient care involvement and no lifting or manual labor. It is primarily a computer based job that can allow you to work from home. Each day you'll receive charts that you'll need to review for fraud/abuse and either approve or deny reimbursements. 

Why would you want to become a Utilization reviewer? ● This job is 100% non patient care - so there is no heavy lifting or labor involved. ● Some companies hire for 100% remote positions in Utilization Review● You'll get paid a similar (and even potentially higher) salary than a clinical job

Can assistants become a utilization reviewers: To be 100% transparent, YES! But it is harder to find a Utilization Review job as they do prefer OT/PT/SLP. There are companies that specifically hire assistants but there are only a few companies that do this so your job options are fewer.  
I would like to share that we have had one of our students which is a COTA (on 11/10/2020) shared with my that she just performed an interview for a utilization reviewer position! It is possible to get a position and interview as an assistant.
