Health Insurance for Individuals Who Require Nursing Home or In-Home Care
AHCCCS offers services for individuals who require nursing home or in-home care. These services are offered through the Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS). This program is intended for individuals who are age 65 or older, blind or have a disability (at any age) and need ongoing services at a nursing facility level of care.
Those who qualify do not have to reside in a nursing home. Many ALTCS members live in their own homes or an assisted living facility and receive needed in-home services.
