Aimed Alliance

Aimed Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to protect and enhance the rights of health care consumers and providers. We advocate on behalf of both consumers and providers independently, and we work to preserve the practitioner-patient relationship. Staffed by attorneys, we analyze legal, regulatory, and ethical issues related to health care access and delivery. We account for the variety of statutes and regulations that govern health care in the U.S., politics, and the often-competing interests of stakeholders.

Our organization educates health care practitioners and consumers on their legal rights regarding access to medically-necessary treatments, including through our “Know Your Rights” campaign. Additionally, we educate insurers and employers on the importance of providing fair and reasonable access to medically-necessary treatments and services. Where we identify patterns or practices that may violate consumer protections, we urge parties to change their policies and encourage enforcement of existing laws.

When possible, we weigh in on developing policy issues and provide nonpartisan recommendations to state and federal policymakers. We advance economically sound and commonsense policy solutions that support access to individually appropriate treatments and services while improving efficiency and affordability.

  • As a speaker at the first ad hoc meeting of rheumatology practice managers gathered in a single small room at its infancy a decade ago, I’m amazed to see how NORM has blossomed into a high energy organization of depth and professional meetings with parallel break-out symposia between plenary sessions. NORM has truly come of age. This is where the “business” of rheumatology gets learned. The ”guildmanship” for rheumatology practice management is now strong.- Paul H. Caldron, DO, FACP, FACR, MBA, Arizona Arthritis and Rheumatology Associates
  • In a time of demanding changes in the management of medical practices in the US, NORM has been a lifesaver to the community of Rheumatology practices.  NORM has allowed our practice to stay ahead of the many demands of CMS and others payors and has ensured that our practice remains cognizant of new issues that arise in HIPPA compliance, human resources and medical billing to name a few. Sending our Practice Manager to NORM's conferences has been cost-effective and beneficial to our practice because she returns to our office with an abundance of information that otherwise would have taken months to compile. Every Rheumatology practice that wishes to stay on top of emerging issues in practice management should consider sending a member of their staff to NORM's conference.- Michael S. Rosen M.D., Chester County Rheumatology PC
  • Thanks to all those wonderful people in the NORM Network who respond to emails, offering their advice, experience, time, and support ... I haven't even been a member a full year yet and I am amazed at the dedication of everyone who responds to helping via emails and the NORM Organization itself! I have barely had a chance to explore the resources and I have yet to really dive into requests for help still I am silently learning so much and do occasionally offer what I can! Thank you all!- Cheryl Piambino, Kenneth E. Bresky, DO
