The State Plan is a comprehensive written contract
between AHCCCS and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that describes
the nature and scope of its Medicaid program. Arizona has a State Plan for Medicaid
and a State Plan for the Children's Health Insurance Program (KidsCare).
The following information is provided:
The State Plan assures that Arizona will administer the Medicaid and Children's
Health Insurance Program (KidsCare) programs according to federal requirements under
the provisions of the Social Security Act and provides a basis for Federal Financial
Participation (FFP). The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) has the responsibility
for approval of amendments to the State Plan at the federal level.

submits amendments to reflect changes in federal law, regulation, policy, or court
decisions. The methods used for determining eligibility for AHCCCS programs or coverage
groups may be modified by Arizona's waiver or by its State Plan for Medicaid or
its State Plan for the Children's Health Insurance Program (KidsCare).
