Sleep Study Program

Sleep is an important part of staying healthy. If you’re not getting enough, or you’re not getting “good” sleep, you’re at risk for more than just being tired. Lack of sleep can increase your risk for serious conditions, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and even diabetes. The Sleep Management Program, administered through Anthem’s AIM Specialty Health division, includes outpatient and home sleep testing and therapy to help you and your doctor determine how to address issues like sleep apnea and help you get a good night’s sleep.

American Imaging Management- Quality Diagnostic Imaging ( MRI/CT scan)

The AIM Imaging Cost & Quality Program provides you with access to important information about imaging services. If you need a MRI or  CT scan, it’s important to know that costs vary quite a bit depending on where you go to receive the service. Sometimes the differences are significant — anywhere from $300 to $3,000 — a higher price doesn’t guarantee higher quality. When you’re paying a portion of the cost (like your deductible or coinsurance), where you go can make a very big difference to your wallet.

That’s where the AIM Imaging Cost & Quality Program comes in — AIM does the research for you and makes it available to help you find the right location for your MRI or CT scan. Here’s how the program works:

  • Your doctor refers you to a radiology provider for an MRI or CT scan.
  • AIM works with your doctor to help make sure that you are receiving the right test — using evidence-based guidelines.
  • AIM also reviews the referral to see if there are other providers in your area that are high quality but have a lower price than the one you were referred to.
  • If AIM finds another provider that meets the quality and price criteria, AIM will call to let you know.
  • You have the choice — you can see the radiology provider your doctor suggested OR you can choose to see a provider that AIM recommends. AIM will even help you schedule an appointment with the new provider.

For more information, have your doctor call 1-888-953-6703.
