AHCCCS Awards Medicaid School-Based Claiming Contract to Public Consulting Group


The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) has awarded a new contract to Public Consulting Group (PCG) to administer the Medicaid School-Based Claiming (MSBC) Program from July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2025. The initial term of the contract is three years with two one-year options to extend, not to exceed a total contracting period of five years.

Through this program, AHCCCS provides direct Medicaid reimbursement for certain health care services delivered to Medicaid-enrolled students and provided by a participating Arizona Local Education Agency (LEA). A LEA is a public school district, a charter school not sponsored by a school district, and the Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind.

PCG is the current contractor and has served as a third party administrator for the MSBC Program for the past 11 years. AHCCCS looks forward to continuing the program under PCG’s newly awarded contract.

For more information about the contract award see the YH21-0007 - Medicaid School Based Claiming RFP procurement documentation.
