How Do I Choose the Right Plan For Me?

Since each plan offers the same coverage, the one you choose will be based on which Geographic Service Area, or GSA, you reside in. These are broken down into North, Central and South with American Indian applicants also having access to the American Indian Health Program regardless of region. It’s important to also check with your preferred doctor and clinic to verify they accept your area’s AHCCCS plan.
