Physical Medicine Management Program

To help ensure that outpatient physical medicine services (physical therapy, occupational therapy and manipulation services) provided to our members are consistent with nationally recognized clinical guidelines, Highmark has contracted with WholeHealth Networks, Inc. (WHN), a subsidiary of Tivity Health Support, LLC., to administer a registration process for physical medicine services as well as to provide medical necessity review and authorization, where applicable, for these services, effective with dates of service of Sept. 1, 2012, and beyond.
