Arizona Medicaid Moving Forward
APPLY ON HEALTH-E-ARIZONA PLUS IF THE FEDERAL MARKETPLACE SAYS YOU MIGHT BE AHCCCS ELIGIBLE
IMPORTANT: If www.healthcare.gov tells you that you Are AHCCCS(Medicaid) eligible, please apply at www.healthearizonaplus.gov.
Many people that are seeking healthcare coverage are applying though the federally-facilitated Marketplace or insurance excange - www.healthcare.gov. The Marketplace does not make AHCCCS eligibility determinations, but it does screen applicants for AHCCCS based on your income. The Marketplace system will tell people who screen AHCCCS eligible that the State will complete their eligibility determination soon.
Recently, the federal government announced that 11,000 individuals had been assessed as Medicaid eligible through the Marketplace in Arizona.
The reality is AHCCCS does not have any applications that started from www.healthcare.gov. Since AHCCCS does not have those applications, no one has been made AHCCCS eligible if they applied on the Marketplace. The federal government is not able to transfer applications of individuals that screen eligible for AHCCCS. At this time, the federal government does not have a date by which they expect this capability to be functioning. So...if the Marketplace screens you as AHCCCS eligible, you must apply for AHCCCS directly. At some later date, yet to be determined, the Marketplace will automatically transfer your application to AHCCCS(Medicaid) and you will not do anything further. If you believe that you may be AHCCCS eligible or have previously been on AHCCCS, you should begin the application process with AHCCCS.
Ajo Ambulanceis an AHCCCS partnership. We can complete your application in our office. Call Virgie Celaya at 520-387-6538 or Gail Valenzuela at 520-387-3047 for more informaton. Set up your appointment today.
