Find Help for Mental Health, Drugs, or Alcohol if You’re on Arizona's Medicaid Program or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
If you're part of the Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), Arizona's Medicaid program, you'll receive all behavioral health services through your chosen AHCCCS Managed Care Organization (MCO) plan. That mean's you'll first choose a primary care provider (PCP) that works with your health plan, and then your PCP will authorize your non-emergency medical services, and send you to a specialist when needed.
You can search the provider directory to find a health care professional. Learn more about the types of providers. To make sure a provider is covered by your health plan, check with your plan's online provider directory or by calling the number on the back of your card.
If you need assistance, contact your Regional Behavioral Health Authority or AHCCCS Complete Care Plan (PDF | 247 KB) in your region of the state.
You can also search for behavioral health providers (PDF | 296 KB) for services on a sliding fee scale.
