While You Are in AIM

In order for the AIM Program to continue to provide services, you must help us in the following ways:

Changing Your Address

You must write to the AIM Program to inform them of any changes with your home phone or billing address or if you move out of state. This letter must be sent 30 days before you move.

Mail or FAX your letter to:

AIM Program
P.O. Box 15559
Sacramento, CA 95852-0559
FAX: (888) 889-9238

If You Get Other Insurance

If you get other insurance after you are enrolled in AIM, you must write to the AIM Program (at the address shown above) right away. This is very important because AIM only pays for benefts not covered by your other insurance. You will still have to pay your share of the cost for AIM coverage (1.5% of your income).

Transferring to Another Health Plan within AIM

In most cases, the health plan you sign up will be the plan you will stay with until your coverage ends. There are only three reasons for which you may transfer or be transferred to another AIM health plan.

  1. You may request to transfer from one AIM health plan to another if you move to an area that your original health plan does not serve.

    The request must be submitted in writing within 30 days before you move.

    If approved, the transfer will take effect within 17 calendar days of the date the program received your request.

  2. You or your health plan may request a transfer because the two of you do not have a good relationship. These requests will only be approved if the transfer is in the best interest of the program. There must also be another AIM provider available where you live. The transfer will take effect within 15 calendar days from approval of the transfer.
  3. You may be transferred to another AIM health plan if the one that you are enrolled in is no longer participating with AIM. The transfer would take effect prior to the end of the health plan contract.

All transfer requests must be approved by the AIM Program.

How long can you be enrolled in AIM?

When will your coverage end?

If you are enrolled, the AIM Program will provide comprehensive health care during your pregnancy and through the last day of the month in which the 60th day following the end of the pregnancy occurs. The AIM Program is only for one pregnancy at a time and cannot cover services received after your AIM coverage has ended. You must notify the AIM Program within 30 days after the end of your pregnancy.

What you need to do once your baby is born?

AIM will mail you an Infant Registration Form 30 days before your estimated date of delivery and you need to return the completed form. You may also use the Infant Registration Form. If you have your baby early or you do not want to register your baby for the Healthy Families Program, you still must notify the AIM Program within 30 days from your delivery. The AIM Program cannot cover any medical services you receive after the last day of the month in which the 60th day following the end of the pregnancy occurs.

What if you have a difficult pregnancy?

The AIM Program provides comprehensive health care for your pregnancy in an effort to help you. AIM understands that sometimes women have difficult pregnancies, and is sorry for any difficulties you may experience. If you are still pregnant after your start date of coverage, the AIM Program will provide comprehensive health care during your pregnancy and through the last day of the month in which the 60th day following the end of the pregnancy occurs. The AIM Program cannot cover any medical services you receive after your AIM coverage has ended. You need to notify the AIM Program within 30 days after the end of your pregnancy.

What if you are no longer pregnant before your start date of coverage?

If you are no longer pregnant before the first day that your AIM coverage starts, your coverage will not begin. Your money will be refunded. You must immediately inform the AIM Program within 30 days of the date that you were no longer pregnant. The AIM Program cannot cover any medical services you receive if you are no longer pregnant before your start date of coverage.

You must notify the AIM Program within 30 days of the end of your pregnancy, even if you have an early end to your pregnancy. You may use the Early End of Pregnancy Form to inform AIM that your pregnancy has ended. If notification to the program is received after the start date of coverage, documentation by a licensed or certified health care professional must be submitted indicating the end date of your pregnancy.

What if you are no longer pregnant after your start date of coverage?

If you are no longer pregnant by the end of your first trimester, you may be eligible for a reduced subscriber contribution. If your pregnancy ends after your first trimester, you will still be responsible for the full 1.5% cost.

You must notify the AIM Program within 30 days from when your pregnancy ends, to inform us of the date that you were no longer pregnant. The AIM Program cannot cover any medical services you receive after the last day of the month in which the 60th day following the end of the pregnancy occurs. You may use the Early End of Pregnancy Form to inform AIM that your pregnancy has ended. If you want to be considered for a reduced subscriber contribution, documentation by a licensed or certified health care professional must be submitted indicating the end date of your pregnancy.

How do you notify AIM?

You must notify the AIM Program within 30 days of the date that your pregnancy ended.
