The 1115 Waiver refers to section 1115 of the Social Security Act (SSA). States
must comply with Title XIX (Medicaid) and Title XXI (Children's Health Insurance
Program) of the SSA. Since Arizona began providing Medicaid on October 1, 1982,
AHCCCS has been exempt from specific provisions of the SSA, pursuant to an 1115
Research and Demonstration Waiver.
AHCCCS continues to work with CMS on various pending waiver requests. Continue to
check the website for updates as developments occur.
