Advanced Imaging Ordering Program

Presbyterian uses the Medical Specialty Solutions (MSS) program, managed by Evolent Specialty Services, for prior authorizations of both non-emergent, advanced diagnostic imaging procedures and cardiac-related imaging procedures performed in an outpatient setting. The program is designed to streamline the authorization process, reduce healthcare costs, and improve patient outcomes. The documents below provide additional information about the MSS program. If you have any questions or concerns about the program, please contact your Provider Network Management relationship executive.
