A definition of Medicaid Insurance in Arizona

Arizona's Medicaid agency is the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, (AHCCCS), and the state uses the term AHCCCS Health Insurance to describe what might commonly be thouht of as Arizona Medicaid.

"AHCCCS contracts with several health plans to provide covered services. An AHCCCS health plan works like a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO). The health plan works with doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, specialists, etc. to provide care."
*source: AHCCCS, Phoenix, AZ 85034

If you are American Indian, you can choose a health plan or get medical services through Indian Health Service, a tribally operated facility, or an urban clinic (ITUs) by enrolling in the American Indian Health Program (AIHP).

The Arizona State Children’s Health Insurance Program (Arizona CHIP), KidsCare:

"KidsCare is affordable health insurance for children 18 years old or younger. KidsCare is provided by the State of Arizona and is managed by the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS). It is for children who do not have health insurance and do not qualify for other AHCCCS health insurance. If you cannot afford health insurance for your children or it is not offered by your employer, KidsCare may be right for your family. With KidsCare, children receive medical, dental and vision services at an affordable cost."
