As a result of a January 2014 report to the Legislature on hospital price transparency,
AHCCCS and the Arizona Department of Health Services established a workgroup of hospital
representatives. The Hospital Transparency Workgroup will discuss ways to improve the
availability of hospital price and quality information in a format that is useful to consumers.
Findings of this workgroup will be included in a January 2015 report to the Governor and
The Arizona Association of Health Plans (AzAHP), representing the organizations that contract
with AHCCCS to provide for the health care needs of Arizona’s Medicaid members, is pleased to
announce the creation of a new Credentialing Alliance aimed at making the credentialing and
recredentialing process easier for our providers by eliminating duplication of efforts and
reducing administrative burdens. Before the launch of the Alliance, practitioners who contract
with the various AHCCCS health plans needed to have their credentials established and refreshed
with each individual health plan in a costly and duplicative process. Today, through the
entrepreneurial efforts of AzAHP, it’s now a one stop credentialing shop for those in our networks.
