Medicaid for Home Care in Arizona

Medicaid Certified Home Care Agency in Arizona

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.

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.

Medicaid Programs:

  • Arizona LTC Services (ALTCS)
  • Arizona Agency with Choice (AWC)

Other Requirements:

  • Individuals making more than 106% of FPL have to contribute premiums toward a health savings account that can be 2% of the entire household income or $25 (whichever is lower)
  • For certain services, it is required to pay a coinsurance of $4 to $75
  • The flexibility allows deferring on premium payments for two months. However, in a quarter, the total amount of copays cannot exceed 5% of the income of the family
