AIM Program Changes

2009/2010 AIM Application and Handbook

The information in the 2009/2010 AIM Application and Handbook, including county plan choices and plan coverage areas, will remain in effect until further notice.

Subscribers whose application for enrollment in AIM is received on or after July 1, 2008

If your pregnancy ends after your effective date of coverage, but still within your first trimester, your subscriber contribution amount may be reduced to 1/3 of the original cost. To qualify for this lower cost, you need to notify the AIM Program within 30 days of the date that you were no longer pregnant.

You must complete the Early End of Pregnancy Form here or send a letter from a doctor or other licensed or certified health care professional, as long as it contains the same information. Your AIM coverage will still end the last day of the month in which the 60th day following the end of the pregnancy occurs. AIM cannot cover any medical services you receive after your coverage has ended.

Registration and Enrollment of Babies in the HFP

Infants are automatically eligible for the Healthy Families Program unless they are enrolled in employer-sponsored insurance or no-cost Medi-Cal. Enrollment can occur at any time through the end of the eleventh month following the birth and will be retroactive back to the date of birth, as long as the infant is not enrolled in employer-sponsored insurance or no-cost Medi-Cal and all past month's premiums are paid. If the enrollment of the baby does not occur by the specified timeframe, the baby is no longer eligible for enrollment, through the AIM related process, and must re-apply for HFP.
