However, reviewers may not determine that the treatment under review is unreasonable or unnecessary solely on the basis that other courses of treatment exist.
(b) If the reviewer is unable to determine whether the treatment under review is reasonable or necessary, the reviewer shall resolve the issue in favor of the provider under review.
