Arizona Medicaid recipients asked to update contact info

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) said it will send notices and flyers to alert Arizonans about eligibility and enrollment following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Arizonans should pay close attention to their mail to prevent potential Medicaid insurance coverage lapse.

For the last three years, those who were on Medicaid were automatically renewed.

Now, 70 percent of Arizonans will be automatically renewed.

But 30 percent of Medicaid users will have to respond to their renewal notification to prevent a lapse in Medicaid insurance coverage.

Heidi Capriotti, Public Information Officer of Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System said, “AHCCCS, Arizona Medicaid program began the regular annual process for all 2.5 million enrolled members. So between and March 2024, we will determine eligibility for everyone who is enrolled in Medicaid."

Arizona Medicaid is working with community partners and advocates to ensure members remain covered and those who are ineligible are directed to other sources for healthcare coverage.

An updated address is key to continued coverage according to Capriotti, “We want Medicaid members to know that it's important that address and contact information is correct in the the Health-e-Arizona Plus eligibility system that way we can find you if we need more information from you in order to determine eligibility."

Arizona AHCCCS also suggests that members should sign up for text or email alerts.
