KidsCare II - Arizona's Temporary Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) ends January 31, 2014; Regular KidsCare Enrollment Update

Federal Authority for the KidsCare II program expired on January 31, 2014. Originally, the program was set to expire December 31, 2013, but AHCCCS requested a one-month extension. Notices were sent to about 23,000 families with income between 100-133% FPL who transitioned to Medicaid effective January 1, 2014. Notices were also sent to about 14,000 families with income over 133% FPL who will need to apply for coverage under the Federally Facilitated Marketplace where premium subsidies are available for eligible households. Regular KidsCare remains in effect with frozen enrollment. Just over 3,300 children on regular KidsCare were transitioned to Medicaid and about 2,600 children remain enrolled in the KidsCare program. These households also received notices letting them know of their transition. Information about the KidsCare II program, for historical purposes only, is available on the link below.
