Critical Access Hospital Payments

Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) are rural community hospitals that meet defined criteria outlined in the Conditions of Participation, 432CFR-485 and subsequent legislative refinements to the program through the BBA, BIPA, and Medicare Modernization Act. The Arizona State Legislature has directed AHCCCS to allocate additional funds appropriated in the annual state budget.
