AHCCCS contracts with the Arizona Department of Health Services, Division of Behavioral Health Services (ADHS/DBHS) to bring behavioral health services to its acute (general medical) care members. AHCCCS oversees all Medicaid services in Arizona. The AHCCCS contract with ADHS/DBHS identifies the standards for behavioral health services.

ADHS/DBHS contracts with Regional Behavioral Health Authorities (RBHAs) to have a network of providers, clinics and other appropriate facilities and services to deliver behavioral health services to eligible members in their contracted geographic service area (GSA). ADHS/DBHS has Intergovernmental Agreements for Tribal RBHAs with some of Arizona's American Indian Tribes to provide behavioral health services to persons living on the reservations.
