Phoenix Health Plan Transitioning to Care1st

On December 20, 2016, Phoenix Health Plan (PHP) entered into an agreement with Care1st Health Plan to transfer all members of Phoenix Health Plan to Care1st.

Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) has not yet approved this agreement, but the agreement is currently under review.

Please review our FAQ document for answers to questions you may have.


Phoenix Health Plan works together with the medical community to help improve the quality and cost effectiveness of health care for our members. Phoenix Health Plan has been dedicated to improving the health and independence of AHCCCS members for nearly 30 years.

We will strive to accommodate physicians’ interests while providing members access to quality, affordable health care. We look forward to partnering with you to deliver better outcomes, increased patient satisfaction and preventive care.

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.
