|| The American Academy of Insurance Medicine (AAIM) is among the oldest medical specialty organizations in the United States. Our physician members typically serve as medical directors to insurance companies. Members may serve these companies as advisors for underwriting and consultants for claims and disability management. Other roles include medical and actuarial research, underwriting guideline development, employee health education and care, and as professional liaison to the medical community, legislative bodies and regulatory agencies.
AAIM Looks to the Future
AAIM believes that medical science, especially the science of mortality and morbidity, is the basis for the practice of insurance medicine. Insurance medicine professionals must use that science to support the insurance industry in providing fair and accurate pricing, underwriting and claims service for its customers.
AAIM believes that insurance medicine will continue to play a unique and valuable role by integrating the science of medicine with the business of insurance. We will continue to support this role to help ensure that the public receives the optimum value that insurance products can bring, along with the fair and ethical consideration that each individual deserves.
The majority of our members come from the United States and Canada. However, South and Central America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia are also represented among our members.
Membership is open to physicians who are Medical Directors of insurance companies, nurses, underwriters, medical consultants and other professionals working in insurance medicine, as well as to affiliates who have a professional interest in insurance medicine.
