AIM Specialty Health® (AIM) recognizes the key role that you and other medical practices play in the delivery of care for patients. Developed in collaboration with your patients’ health plans, our Surgical Procedures reviews help support quality care that is consistent with evidence-based medicine. And that’s good news for your practice and the patients you serve.

Our process

AIM is here to assist in your efforts to deliver the best quality and affordable care for your patients. The clinical information you submit is reviewed against clinical guidelines and health plan specific medical policies to ensure alignment with current best practices. Providers benefit by having a central location to obtain authorizations required by your patients’ health plans.
