Prior Quarter Coverage Waiver Amendment

The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) is requesting a waiver of the requirement to provide three months of retroactive coverage to new AHCCCS members. AHCCCS is seeking the flexibility to limit retroactive coverage to the month of application, consistent with Arizona’s policy prior to passage of the Affordable Care Act.

AHCCCS is hosting community meetings across the state to provide the public with information about the upcoming Waiver submittal. These sessions will also provide the opportunity for AHCCCS to hear from stakeholders, including members and their families, advocates and providers.
