Sign Up for Direct Deposit

The electronic payment option processes payments using the Automated Clearing House (ACH). This method enables providers to receive reimbursement more quickly than issuing a check. The Arizona Clearing House Association (ACHA) processes the payment directly to the provider's bank account through Bank of America, which functions as the State servicing bank.

Benefits of Receiving Payments Electronically

The benefits of receiving payments electronically are:

  • Immediate availability of funds
  • Fully traceable payments
  • Elimination of mail and deposit delays
  • Elimination of lost, stolen, or misplaced checks
