In the August 2021 edition of Provider News, we announced an expansion to the AIM Specialty Health® (AIM) musculoskeletal program for medical necessity review of the requested site of service for certain joint and interventional pain procedures for Anthem fully-insured members. This program has been delayed. AIM will begin accepting prior authorization requests on December 13, 2021 for dates of service on January 1, 2022 and after.


Medical necessity for musculoskeletal procedures are still required. All codes and clinical guidelines included in the musculoskeletal program can be found on the AIM MSK website.
