AIM Specialty Health

The UniCare State Indemnity Plan partners with AIM (American Imaging Management) Specialty Health to support the review process for certain services and procedures that require preapproval.

Check out AIM’s new rehabilitation program and guide to using its ProviderPortal.

Our Provider Reference Sheet identifies which services are reviewed by UniCare, which are reviewed by AIM, and how much notice is required.

Put the AIM ProviderPortalSM to Work for You

Obtaining prior authorization by phone can be a time-consuming process, from the arduous voice prompts to the length of time waiting to talk to an intake specialist, but there is a better way. The best way to submit a review request is to use the AIM ProviderPortalSM. It is:
• Self-service
• Available 24/7
• Customizable with physician information
• Easy to use and allows real-time determinations

How to Request Preapproval

Here’s who to contact to request preapproval:

  • UniCare reviews: UniCare Provider Services at 800-442-9300

  • AIM reviews: Contact AIM directly through the AIM web application or call 866-766-0247

  • Express Scripts: For review of certain non-oncology specialty drugs for non-Medicare members only, call 855-283-7679

UniCare's partnership with AIM lets our providers use AIM's web-based application for services reviewed by AIM. Providers can log into the AIM application and complete the intake. In many cases, the entire review and approval process can be done online. Providers who already use AIM's web application will not have to re-register for UniCare.

Express Scripts, the administrator for the prescription drug plan for UniCare's non-Medicare members, covers and dispenses self- or office-administered specialty drugs (non-oncology). In addition, some specialty drugs require review and dispensing by Express Scripts, for non-Medicare members only. The list of these specialty drugs is updated periodically and posted. Review the Express Scripts Specialty Drug List.
