QUESTIONS

  • Where can I go in Yuma to get an absessed tooth pulled under AHCCS?
  • Where can I find more information on the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act? Is there anything that can be done if a hospital violates this Act? Who needs to be contacted?
  • I applied 3 weeks ago how long before I recieve my ahcccs card
  • I am 19, I moved away from home when I was 17. I have since then have lived with my boyfriend and gone to school. I am finishing HS and will be getting ready to make some decisions for college. I do not work. Would I be eligible for AHCCS?
  • How can i get another Ahcccs card for my one year old daughter
  • My wife and I are going through a separation and are in the process of either a legal seperation or divorce, I have been covered on her insurance. She will no longer cover me on her insurance. I am disabled and have no income, can I apply for AHCCCS with a legal separation?
  • Was told by my interviewer that I must present all of my family's birth certificates so that DES may "stamp" them. She said this was a law as of April 2006, however, the first time I applied, they did not say this, nor did they "stamp" our birth certificates. I'd like to know where I can find this law, and will I be turned down for food stamps and AHCCCS if I don't let DES stamp our birth certificates?
  • Does anyone know how long (even ballpark) it takes AHCCCS to follow up on a fraud report? I sent one in on April 1st, and the fraudulent person is *still* getting services! I gave them all of the info they need to verify this person has group insurance. They just have to make one phone call to prove the case.
  • What is considered poverty level? how do i know if i qualify for the program?
  • Myself and my 5 sons were on AHCCCS but I canceled when I got married. Well now my husband and I are separated and I'm on SSI no other income. Can I re qualify for myself and my 5 sons or at least my 5 sons even if I'm still legally married?
