KidsCare Wait List
Wed July 25, 2012
There were 93,331 applicants on the KidsCare waiting list as of July 15, 2012. Please
note, AHCCCS continues to verify eligibility for Medicaid and revise the KidsCare
wait list accordingly.
Wed Feb 15, 2012
There were 136,843 applicants on the KidsCare waiting list as of February 15, 2012.
Please note, this number does not mean all individuals on the waiting list are actually
eligible for KidsCare. AHCCCS has recently updated the list to remove duplicate
applications, children who have turned 19 and would no longer qualify for Kidscare,
and individuals currently eligible under other AHCCCS programs . Typically, 30%
of all applicants are denied for the KidsCare program. However, this percentage
will become less precise as more time goes by, since the applications on the waiting
list will be older and circumstances for those applicants change. Thus, there is
no good way to predict how many of the applicants on the waiting list might be eligible
for KidsCare. Regardless, AHCCCS will continue to update the waiting list number
at the end of each month.
