Arizona Health and Cost Containment System The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) is Arizona's Medicaid program and the State of Arizona's health care program for persons who do not qualify for Medicaid. AHCCCS contracts with health plans and other program contractors, paying them a monthly “capitation” amount prospectively for each enrolled member. The plan or contractor is then “at risk” to deliver the necessary services within the capitated amount. AHCCCS receives federal, state and county funds to operate, plus some monies from Arizona’s tobacco tax. Contact AHCCCS at 602-417-4000.
