2020 Community Presentations

The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) is hosting community forums across the state to inform the community and gather feedback on the upcoming AHCCCS initiative on RBHA services. We look forward to hearing from members, family members, advocates, community members, providers and stakeholders at one of the planned community forums listed below

AHCCCS invites you to participate in a discussion regarding the presence of disparities within Arizona’s health care delivery system as well as opportunities to address those disparities in order to foster improved health outcomes for all AHCCCS enrollees.

AHCCCS invites you to attend public meetings on the upcoming Waiver Renewal (2021-2026), where the public can provide comments and questions about the proposed waiver renewal request.
