AHCCCS Complete Care (ACC) Technical Amendment

The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) is submitting formal request to amend Arizona’s Section 1115 Research and Demonstration Waiver. AHCCCS proposes technical amendments to the language of the Special Terms and Conditions to reflect the delivery system changes resulting from the AHCCCS Complete Care (ACC) managed care contract award.

On October 1, 2018, AHCCCS transitioned 1.5 million AHCCCS members into managed care plans called AHCCCS Complete Care (ACC) plans that provide integrated physical and behavioral health care services. Specifically, the ACC Plans serve AHCCCS Acute Care Program enrollees except for adults determined to have a Serious Mental Illness and foster children enrolled with the Comprehensive Medical and Dental Program (CMDP).

The public had the opportunity to review and comment on the proposal in person at public forums throughout the State and in writing via e-mail to publicinput@azahcccs.gov or mail to:

801 E. Jefferson Street, MD 4200
Phoenix, AZ 85034

All comments received by December 28, 2018, will be reviewed, considered and included in the final proposal sent to CMS.
