Medical Mutual’s SmartChoice concierge program (performed by eviCore Healthcare in partnership with MMO’s Radiology Utilization Management program) launched July 1, 2019, with the intention to help individual and group members to use lower-cost network facilities for approved imaging services like MRIs, CT and PET scans.
The program notifies providers of high cost facilities and recommends lower cost facilities instead. If the provider declines the lower-cost suggestion, the member is then notified that there may be lower-cost and more convenient options available.
