The Arizona Medicaid reimbursement for any caregiver agency depends on the agency’s certification as HHA. States have issued their checklist along with the regulations with more emphasis on certifications and licenses than other states are currently following.
There could be an exemption for some non-medical private-duty home care agencies with regards to certification. The detailed information is available at the state’s Human Service Department and Bureau of Licensing and Certification.
Governing Body: Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS)
Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), the other name for Medicaid in Arizona, is a state and federal health care program for low-income individuals who don’t qualify for its other programs but make less than 133% of FPL. There are separate Medicaid programs to provide health coverage to seniors, blind people, pregnant women, parents, children, disabled people, and caregivers.
The application process for accessing Medicaid in Arizona is simple. One can apply online for the available Medicaid programs by visiting the Health-e-Arizona Plus website.
