Over one-third of the United States population suffers from low literacy rates or limited English speaking proficiency or both. One of the goals of the Affordable Care Act was to extend coverage to many of these challenged individuals, but federal funding to the states for eligibility determination systems can be jeopardized if they do not achieve what has been classified as “effective communication with beneficiaries”.
Answering a market need for addressing Public Health, low literacy and low English proficiency, the Alliance for Innovation in Medicaid or “AIM®” was formed. AIM® is a consortium of three of the most forward thinking companies in the healthcare technology sector with a goal to meet the need of those who could not otherwise have access to health coverage as a result of an inability to read or comprehend health care offerings.
