Report Third Party Liability (TPL)

Health Plans (HPs) are required by AHCCCS contract to submit new additions and updates to existing Commercial Third Party insurance coverage information associated with their enrolled Medicaid Members. This TPL information is processed, verified and stored in the AHCCCS PMMIS database. It is used to cost avoid medical, dental and pharmacy expense where AHCCCS members have other insurance coverage that must be exhausted prior to using Medicaid funds.

TPL coverage addition, change and termination information is provided through either of two coverage notification processes. Both have the same data requirements for an acceptable transaction.

The website provided by the AHCCCS TPL Contractor

An online Medical Insurance Referral may be completed and submitted to AHCCCS through the Health Management Systems (HMS) website whenever an AHCCCS recipient is discovered to have other medical insurance, or whenever other medical insurance has terminated or changed. The Contractor then verifies the TPL coverage information provided and submits verified records back to AHCCCS.
