About the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS)
Founded in 1982, the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (written as AHCCCS and pronounced 'access') is Arizona's Medicaid program, a federal health care program jointly funded by the federal and state governments for individuals and families who qualify based on income level.
Built on a system of competition and choice, AHCCCS is a $14 billion program that operates under an integrated managed care model, through a Research and Demonstration 1115 Waiver. Contracted health plans coordinate and pay for physical and behavioral health care services delivered by more than 80,000 health care providers to 1.9 million Arizonans.
