AHCCCS Emergency Protocols

Under A.R.S. § 41-5202 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, AHCCCS has a process for communicating with its members during a state of emergency. AHCCCS has protocols in place to communicate with local state, county, city and tribal personnel, and additional protocols for notifications to members when they could be threatened by a state of emergency. It is AHCCCS’s priority that all members receive effective communication regardless of language of origin or ability.
