Today there are over 200 Community Partner organizations in more than 400 locations throughout the state using HEAplus to help Arizonans apply online for AHCCCS Health Insurance, Nutrition Assistance (formerly Food Stamps) and TANF Cash Assistance. Application assistors from these organizations complete HEAplus applications during an interactive interview with the customer. The customer only needs to sign the application at the end. With improved access to electronic data sources, HEAplus is often able to verify much of the information that is needed for an eligibility decision. When electronic sources do not verify all information needed, assistors can help customers submit documents to their HEAplus application electronically. Assistors can track the progress of the application and help their customers throughout the application process.
For more information, please contact an AHCCCS representative at HEAAHCCCS@azahcccs.gov.
