The Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides states multiple and complex opportunities with respect to the future of their Medicaid programs. With these opportunities in mind, Governor Brewer signed into law the AHCCCS Restoration Plan which restores coverage to thousands of Childless Adults and provides coverage for those between 100-133% of the Federal Poverty Level, beginning January 1, 2014. The links below provide detailed information regarding the impact of these provisions to Arizona’s Medicaid program. Additional information will be posted to this page as soon as it becomes available.

The AHCCCS Strategic Plan identifies four goals critical to sustain and build on the success of the AHCCCS program in light of the restoration of coverage -- the most important healthcare policy issue the State has faced since the inception of the AHCCCS program 30 years ago and can be found on the link below:

  • Medicaid & Medicare Fraud

    Although there are a number of changes associated with the Affordable Care Act, changes to Medicare is NOT one of them. Medicare beneficiaries do NOT need to buy insurance in the new Health Insurance Marketplace. Unfortunately, there have been a number of reports on fraud-related activity. Arizonans who have Medicare should use caution and should not share their personal identifying information with anyone.
