Privileging Application and Requirements - Radiology Management Program

Highmark, with the assistance of National Imaging Associates, Inc. (NIA), an affiliate of Magellan Health, Inc., has implemented a new imaging privileging process. On this page you will find Highmark's privileging requirements and online application instructions.

Privileging is only required for imaging provider sites that are physically located in the 29 counties of western Pennsylvania, the 21 counties of central Pennsylvania and the 13 counties in northeastern Pennsylvania. Highmark's indemnity members are excluded from this requirement.

Process for Completing a Privileging Application

If you perform diagnostic imaging services and would like to apply to become a privileged provider, you must complete the online Highmark Privileging Application.

You will need to contact NIA at 1-888-972-9642 or send an e-mail to to obtain a login for the application. (Each diagnostic imaging location will require a separate application and login.) NIA will need the following information in order to assign a login.

  • Provider name
  • Address of diagnostic imaging location
  • Tax identification number
