MA – BCBSMA Begins Sleep Management Program on July 1, 2013
5/20/2013 – BCBSMA will begin their Sleep Management Program on July 1, 2013. The program will be administered by AIM Specialty Health. All clinicians who request prior authorizations for sleep studies or sleep durable medical equipment and supplies will need to be registered with AIM in order to request authorizations. Provides may begin requesting prior authorization for sleep studies on June 16 for services on or after July 1.
Facilities, sleep laboratories, and DME providers are required to complete an assessment survey by June 1, 2013. Providers that complete the survey will be included in an online directory for referring providers. This requirement is not part of credentialing and does not affect network participation.
