BCBSND Imaging Partnership with
AIM Specialty Health

What is AIM?
AIM Specialty Health provides a comprehensive imaging management program that reviews the clinical appropriateness of diagnostic imaging tests requested by medical providers for BCBSND members.

For dates of service beginning in April 2014, providers will need to seek clinical case review for all outpatient non-emergency diagnostic imaging tests ordered for BCBSND members. Compliance with the program will be monitored beginning in June 2014, with additional educational outreach provided as necessary.

How to submit an imaging request
Providers need to register and submit imaging requests on AIM Specialty Health's ProviderPortal. Providers can submit requests through the online portal or by calling 1-866-714-1104, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. central time.

Below are some additional resources for providers about the program:
