What is AHCCCS?

AHCCCS is Arizona’s Medicaid agency. Mostly, Medicaid helps elders and people with disabilities afford certain medical treatments, but, in Arizona, it can be used by anyone who is under a certain income level. Furthermore, Arizona recognizes the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Mental Health Parity and Equity Act (MHPAEA), so Medicaid benefits can be used to pay for mental health and substance use disorder treatments.

To be eligible for AHCCCS coverage, you must meet these requirements:

  • Arizona resident

  • U.S. citizen, LPR, or legal alien

  • Categorized as low-income

Additional requirements based on your disability, age, and dependents may apply. Furthermore, if you are making too much income to get AHCCCS insurance coverage for no cost, then you might qualify to pay a low monthly premium instead.

What AHCCCS Covers

AHCCCS insurance benefits can cover a variety of different mental health and substance use disorder treatments and therapies. Many of those services are offered here at Holdfast Recovery, which means you might be able to use those benefits to reduce the cost of our treatments. In some situations, and with the right insurance benefits, some treatments might be of no cost to you.

AHCCCS insurance can be used to help pay for:

  • Behavioral health programs

  • Therapeutic programs

  • Crisis services

  • Rehabilitation services

  • Residential behavioral health services

  • 24/7 in-patient behavioral health programs

  • Medication-based substance abuse treatments

  • Specialized testing services

  • Treatment housing costs

  • And much more


You can think of AHCCCS as a traditional Health Maintenance Organization (HMO). It connects you with clinics, medical professionals, and pharmacies who accept this type of insurance, just as we do here at Holdfast Recovery. When you are first approved for AHCCCS insurance, you should be instructed to choose a primary care provider (PCP), who will likely be involved in the decision to enroll you in our substance addiction recovery services.
