AHCCCS Stresses Behavioral Health Service Timeliness through #Nowaitlists Campaign

The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) has started a campaign on Twitter #Nowaitlists to create awareness that it is not acceptable for individuals seeking behavioral health services be placed on “wait lists” by providers. If this problem occurs individuals or families should report the problem immediately by calling our Member Services number at 1-800-640-2123.

 

“If members in any AHCCCS plan are being placed on ‘wait lists’ for services, they can report the problem to us or AHCCCS and we will aggressively make sure that services are offered and that the wait list is abolished. There should be no wait list for AHCCCS members.”

– Shawn Nau, HCIC Chief Executive Officer
