Obtaining Services

AIHP members may receive health care services from Indian Health Facilities (the Indian Health Service, tribally-operated "638" health programs, urban Indian health clinics) and other AHCCCS-registered providers.

Unique Program Choices

AI/AN members can switch their enrollment between AHCCCS AIHP and an AHCCCS managed health care plan and back again at any time. However, a member can change from one managed health care plan to another (for example, Mercy Care Plan to Molina Healthcare) only once a year.


There are two ways for AHCCCS members to change their AHCCCS enrollment:
