Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS) members and families: Give us your input on the person-centered service planning process. Person-centered service planning supports ALTCS members in planning and creating the life they want through services and supports.

AHCCCS is evaluating and revising person-centered service planning standards, practices and forms. We want to improve support for community integration so that members have full access to the benefits of community living. This initiative is part of the State’s plan to comply with the new Home and Community Based Settings Rules. Share your thoughts about the following:

  • How does the current process support individuals to plan and create the life they want?
  • How can we ensure the new process supports community integration for ALTCS members?
