AIM - Access for Infants and Mothers


The State of California wants to help you get good health care for your pregnancy, even if money is a little tight. Going without prenatal care can cause many problems for you and your baby. Studies show that women who do not get prenatal care often have more complicated (and expensive) births. If you don't have insurance to cover your pregnancy and are not receiving no-cost Medi-Cal or Medicare Part A or Part B, the Access for Infants and Mothers (AIM) Program may be just the helping hand you and your baby need. AIM can even help if you have health insurance but your co-payment or deductible for maternity services is more than $500.
