Highmark has partnered with eviCore healthcare (eviCore) for the Advanced Imaging and Cardiology Services Program. This program incorporates a comprehensive, evidence-based clinical review including predictive intelligence, clinical decision support, and peer-to-peer discussions.
eviCore will manage the prior authorizations for advanced imaging and cardiology services for Highmark's fully insured Commercial, Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) of Pennsylvania, Medicare Advantage, and Affordable Care Act (ACA) members, plus members of select self-insured (Administrative Services Only) groups.
Effective August 1, 2021, the program will expand to include out-of-area (OOA) and out-of-network (OON) cardiology and radiology services.
Note: The Federal Employee Program is excluded from this program.
