Yuma Regional Medical CenterInsurance Enrollment FairLocation: Yuma Regional Corporate Center 399 W 32nd StreetDate: March 8, 2014
At YRMC, part of our commitment to putting our patients first comes from making sure each patient has access to affordable health insurance. YRMC will be hosting a free AHCCCS enrollment fair if you would like assistance in applying for AHCCCS, we encourage you to attend. Assistance will be available in English and Spanish.
Health care options are expanding and changing for many Arizona residents. This includes the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, also known as AHCCCS, Arizona's Medicaid program. If you did not qualify for AHCCCS in the past, a few guidelines have changed and you may now be eligible. The income level to qualify for AHCCCS has increased and you are no longer required to have children under the age of 18. If you have low annual income, live in the state of Arizona and are a legal resident, you may be eligible for AHCCCS.
Additionally, AHCCCS is now offering "Prior Quarter Coverage," which reimburses AHCCCS approved applicants for services three months prior to the time the individual applies for coverage. This means that if you received medical services after January 1, 2014, and were eligible for Medicaid at the time but were not enrolled in AHCCCS, you may qualify for reimbursement of those services.
If you are not eligible for AHCCCS, you should consider plans in the Insurance Marketplace. All plans in the Marketplace cover essential health benefits, pre-existing conditions, and more. Visit www.healthcare.gov to learn more about the Insurance Marketplace.
