The goal of our Advanced Imaging Program is to provide quality care to our members at an affordable price. As we see trends evolve that may impact the quality, safety or affordability of care, we implement solutions to protect our members. As medical technology for diagnostic imaging advances, our Advanced Imaging Program ensures you receive the appropriate quality care for your specific condition that is both safe and affordable.
How the Program Works:
- When your physician determines you need certain exams, such as a CT or MRI, their office staff contacts AIM and provides clinical information.
- AIM verifies the right test has been selected based on clinical guidelines developed by cardiologists to ensure the testing meets accepted standards for medical best practice.
- In most cases, you can expect a call from AIM to alert you if a high-quality site near your home is available that offers your exam at a lower cost. This can reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.
- If you choose to change your exam location, AIM will assist you in making a new appointment, offering you added convenience.
