Welcome to AIM

To have a healthy baby — One of the best things you can do is see a doctor early and often.

What Is AIM?

The AIM Program is low-cost health coverage for pregnant women. Their newborns may be covered by the Healthy Families Program. AIM is for middle-income families who don’t have health insurance and whose income is too high for no-cost Medi-Cal. AIM is also available to women who have private health insurance plans with a maternity-only deductible or copayment greater than $500. You can read more about Coordination of Benefts between your private health insurance plan and the AIM health plans in the Glossary of Terms in this AIM handbook. If you are enrolled in AIM, your baby is eligible for enrollment in Healthy Families unless your baby is enrolled in employer-sponsored insurance or no-cost Medi-Cal.

What Is the Healthy Families Program?

The Healthy Families Program is low-cost health, dental, and vision coverage for children and teens up to age 19. It provides comprehensive coverage for children who do not have employer-sponsored insurance and do not qualify for no-cost Medi-Cal. If you are enrolled in AIM, your baby is eligible for enrollment in Healthy Families Program unless your baby is enrolled in employer-sponsored insurance or no-cost Medi-Cal. If you do not register your baby, coverage will not begin.

Important information about a change in the Healthy Families Program.

All Children enrolled in the Healthy Families Program will move to the Medi-Cal Program. This is due to a change in state law. The children’s coverage will move to Medi-Cal in groups starting no sooner than January 2013 and continue through 2013. Children enrolled in Healthy Families will not lose any health, dental, or vision coverage when they change to Medi-Cal. If your baby is enrolled in Healthy Families Program you will receive more information.

If your baby needs health care coverage now, we encourage you to apply. The following information about Healthy Families coverage for your baby will change sometime in 2013. We will notify you of any changes.
