Several additions to Arizona’s Medicaid benefits were approved in the last legislative session and took effect on Oct. 1, 2022.
Diabetes Self-Management Training
AHCCCS will provide up to 10 program hours annually of diabetes outpatient self-management training services to members with new or existing diabetes diagnoses. The training must be prescribed by a primary care practitioner.
AHCCCS covers biomarker testing for the purposes of diagnosis, treatment, appropriate management, or ongoing monitoring of a member’s disease or condition when the test is supported by medical and scientific evidence. New legislation adds coverage of four additional biomarker tests that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) considers useful for therapeutic decision-making.
AHCCCS will cover up to 20 medically necessary chiropractic visits for adults each year. Services must be ordered by a primary care provider and within the scope of chiropractic practice as defined by state law. Additional chiropractic services may be authorized in the same year if determined to be medically necessary.
