On December 1, 2018, Empire introduced the new clinical criteria page for injectable, infused or implanted drugs.


Effective for dates of service on and after March 1, 2019, the attached clinical criteria will be included in our clinical criteria review process.  The drugs that require prior authorization will continue to require prior authorization notification with AIM. 


Existing precertification requirements have not changed for the specific Clinical Criteria below.  While there are no material changes, the document number and online location has changed.  To access the clinical criteria information please click here. The table below will assist you in identifying the new document number for the clinical criteria that corresponds with the previous Clinical Guideline/Medical Policy.


Empire’s prior authorization clinical review of these specialty pharmacy drugs will be managed by AIM Specialty Health® (AIM), a separate company.
