LOS ANGELES — The AIDS Healthcare Foundation continues its condom-only campaign with new allegations against AIM Healthcare, now known as AIM Medical Associates.

AHF is asking state Attorney General Kamala Harris to open an investigation into possible violations by AIM. The move comes weeks after the organization changed its status from nonprofit to a private- for-profit group that now has to comply with the state medical board instead of Los Angeles County’s health department.

A spokesperson at the attorney general’s office told XBIZ that any investigation requests the office receives goes through its public inquiry unit and any information about any investigation is kept confidential.

“In a deliberate, admitted effort to avoid regulatory scrutiny by public health officials, AIM’s principals have publicly announced that they have created a new, for-profit entity known as AIM Medical Associates,” AHF President Michael Weinstein said in his letter.

“AIM admits that it is transferring assets from the nonprofit entity to AIM P.C. in order to avoid scrutiny by public health officials, who ordered AIM to cease operating its clinic in December due to its failure to obtain proper licensure.”

AIM attorney Jeffrey Douglas was unavailable to XBIZ for comment by post time.
