What Is ALTCS?
The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) is the state organization designed to oversee the Arizona Medicaid program known as Arizona Long Term Care Systems (ALTCS). The ALTCS program is designed to assist those in need of either full nursing home care or home and community- based services to assist those people who would otherwise require full nursing home care. The ALTCS program operates under a federal waiver; which means that the state does not follow the rules that other states are required to follow. Arizona’s rules are constantly changing and evolving to meet its residents’ needs.
