Some physician requests to AIM require the submission of documentation to support attestations for prior authorization
Providers currently submit prior authorization requests to AIM Specialty Health® (AIM) for outpatient diagnostic imaging services. These prior authorizations are often reviewed based on provider attestation as to certain requirements. As part of our ongoing quality improvement efforts, we want you to know that some review requests may require documentation to substantiate the attestations that supports the clinical appropriateness of the request. This documentation can be uploaded during the intake process.
When requested, providers must submit such documentation from the patient’s medical record. If medical necessity is not supported through documents submitted, the request may be denied as not medically necessary. Such documentation is limited to what has been asserted via the prior authorization review attestations. If the request would be denied as not medically necessary, providers can participate in a prior authorization discussion with an AIM physician reviewer.
