How to Apply for Arizona Long Term Care (ALTCS)

The Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS) program is for individuals who are 65 or older, blind, or disabled and need ongoing services at a nursing facility level of care.

However, program participants do not have to reside in a nursing home. Many ALTCS participants live in their own homes or an assisted living facility and receive needed in-home services.

To apply for Long Term Care, call or visit an Arizona Long Term Care office.
