AIM Resolves Dispute
Earlier this week The AIM Center finalized an agreement with the State of Tennessee and the federal government related to a civil claim regarding billing for psychosocial services provided to TennCare covered individuals. None of the funds to resolve the dispute come from donor contributions or grants awarded to The AIM Center. Although it is AIM’s position that their billings to TennCare were proper according to AIM’s contract with the State, AIM made the decision to settle the civil claims with the government to avoid an expensive and distracting legal battle in court. Services provided by the AIM Center were never interrupted or will be limited as a result of the agreement. The government did not claim The AIM Center failed to provide services to their members or that the services provided were unnecessary. The AIM Center continues to thrive and serve individuals with mental illness in our community by providing education, life skill development, employment services and support to live healthy, fulfilling lives.
