AIM Clinical Appropriateness Guidelines for Radiation Oncology

The foundation of our solution platform for specialty benefits management is our clinical appropriateness guidelines.

AIM Clinical Appropriateness Guidelines for Radiation Oncology are developed through a rigorous process integrating evidence-based literature with expert physician review. Included below are guidelines for radiation therapy and proton beam therapy.

Effective March 9, 2019, the enhanced AIM Specialty Health General Clinical Guideline will replace the Administrative Guidelines which previously applied to AIM Clinical Appropriateness Guidelines for Radiology. The new General Clinical Guideline standardizes language related to clinical appropriateness, simultaneous ordering of multiple diagnostic or therapeutic interventions, and repeat diagnostic or therapeutic interventions, making this information applicable to all AIM Clinical Appropriateness Guidelines—Radiology, Cardiology, Sleep Medicine, Radiation Oncology, and Musculoskeletal. There are no changes to specific clinical criteria.
