Pregnant Women

As of October 1, 2013, AHCCCS is no longer processing Baby Arizona applications. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires states to utilize a single streamlined application approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. In Arizona, this is completed through the Health-e-Arizona Plus (HEAplus) online application. HEAplus offers a quick and user-friendly process when applying for health insurance and can be accessed directly at www.healthearizonaplus.gov.
