Some requests to AIM require documentation to support 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, certain 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. 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.
