Medicaid in Arizona

Arizona Has Always Done Medicaid Its Own Way

Medicaid in Arizona is known as AHCCCS, a program that leverages the private sector to the greatest extent to provide health care coverage through private health plans that drive market-based innovations and leverage their networks so members receive their care from the same hospitals and doctors as commercially insured Arizonans. The result has been highest quality care at a low cost. This is why Arizona is considered the Gold Standard.

AHCCCS by the Numbers

  • 1.9 Million Arizonans Enrolled in AHCCCS –1 in 4 Arizonans in Medicaid
