AHCCCS Works Exemption for AI/AN Members

American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) and their children and grandchildren are exempt from the AHCCCS Works community engagement requirement. Before the AHCCCS Works program begins, all AI/AN members between the ages of 19 and 49 will receive correspondence from the program.

How To Receive The AI/AN Member Exemption When AHCCCS Works Begins in 2020

What if... Answer
I receive correspondence that I am exempt from participating in AHCCCS Works requirements? No further action is required.
I’m an American Indian/Alaska Native member who receives notice that I must participate in AHCCCS Works? Identify yourself as an AI/AN member to maintain AHCCCS benefits and eligibility. Log in to healthearizonaplus.gov
I am selected to verify my tribal membership for my exemption? Documentation can be uploaded to HEAplus directly by member or Community Assistors, taken to a local DES office, or mailed or faxed to DES.
