The Arizona Association of Health Plans (AzAHP) is pleased to announce the creation of a new credentialing alliance aimed at making the credentialing and recredentialing process easier by eliminating duplication of efforts and reducing administrative burden.

When providers are contracted with Phoenix Health Plan, a Provider Service representative will be assigned to your practice and will serve as your primary point of contact. Your representative will visit you and your office staff on a regular basis to share important information and assist you with your administrative or operational concerns.
Important reminder, as a registered provider with the AHCCCS Administration, (Arizona's Medicaid Program), you are obligated under 42 C.F.R.100.1.1901(b), to screen all employees, contractors and/or subcontractors to determine whether any of them have been excluded from participation in Federal health care programs. You can search the HHS-OIG website, at no cost, by the names of any individuals or entities. The database is called LEIE, and can be accessed at http://www.oig.hhs.gov/fraud/exclusions.asp
