Chronic Pain is the fastest rising cost of healthcare in the country. Nearly 1 in 3 Americans have some type of chronic pain, yet only 17% of patients report their chronic pain to their primary care physicians.
In 2003, AMI created the country’s first truly integrated approach to managing patients with chronic pain. Through AMI’s proprietary algorithms our ICPP has unmasked the hidden costs for patients suffering from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and chronic neck and back pain.
After this population has been accurately risk adjusted and identified, the program has been proven to reduce cost and improve the mental and physical quality of life in both commercial and Medicaid populations across the country.
AMI’s ICPP has been embraced by both state and federal legislative bodies. AMI was the first integrative medicine company to receive waivers granted by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide federally approved reimbursement for massage therapy, acupuncture, nutritional counseling and pharmaceutical consulting.
Recent independent patient satisfaction survey results (taken over the past two-years) have shown significant physical and mental improvements, as well as program cost savings of upwards of 15 to 28% of the patient’s total medical spend.
“Since I began the AMI program I went from taking 15 injections of pain relief for my spine due to rotational scoliosis plus 15-22 tablets a day for various health conditions to taking 3 meds a day which are multivitamins, allergy medication & Naproxen 4-5 days out of the entire month! I personally recommend AMI to all my friends & family.”
“I never realized until I started this program how beneficial massage could truly be. I am always recommending alternative prevention to people! This is the new era of medical treatment.”
