A person may be able to qualify even if the person is not the parent of the child,

is a grandparent who is raising a grandchild, the grandparent may be eligible as a caretaker relative.
Income limits change every April 1.
Transitional Medical Assistance and Continuous Coverage programs are extensions of the Caretaker
Relative program. Caretaker relatives and the children they live with may become ineligible for
Medical Assistance due to excess income. These programs allow customers to have up to 12 months
of additional coverage.
Transitional Medical Assistance (TMA)
Continuous Coverage (CC)
If the family's income is too high for AHCCCS Health Insurance, the children may
qualify for KidsCare at a low monthly premium.
If the child is under age 26 and was in the custody of the Department of Economic Security (DES) and placed in a foster home or with a child welfare agency on the child's 18th birthday, the child may qualify for AHCCCS Health Insurance
regardless of how much money the child has.
