  Access for Infants and Mothers Program (AIM)

The State of California established the Access for Infants and Mothers (AIM) Program to increase access to health care services for pregnant women who do not have maternity health insurance (or have a maternity deductible of $500+) or do not qualify for Medi-Cal.  Your total cost will be exactly 1.5% of your adjusted annual household income after income deductions. This is a total cost, not a monthly premium. You may pay your 1.5% cost when you submit your application, or you may make monthly payments for one year. A $50 discount will be given if you send your full 1.5% cost with your application.

CenCal Health is the Health Plan offering AIM to women who live in Santa Barbara County.  To find out more about the AIM program and how to apply, please call 1-800-433-2611or visit their website at  or call CenCal Health’s Member Services Department at 1-877-814-1861.
