Did you know AHCCCS Helps Law Enforcement Find Missing People?

The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), Arizona’s Medicaid program, launched a new tool to make it easier for law enforcement agencies to request data that may help them find missing persons. This is one of several strategies AHCCCS is implementing to find missing persons, especially American Indian members enrolled in the American Indian Health Program from AHCCCS.

“AHCCCS is improving the tools we have to help law enforcement partners find missing American Indian Health Program members and other Medicaid enrollees,” said Carmen Heredia, AHCCCS director. “As we have learned more about this issue, it became clear that we could expedite and streamline the data sharing process for law enforcement agencies.”

Under specific conditions in federal law, AHCCCS is able to provide information to law enforcement about enrolled members, if there is available data. This new data request form streamlines the process and helps the agency respond more quickly.

The law enforcement agency requesting the information must complete a Request for Data form with as much detail as possible and attest that the data will not be used against the victim. The Request for Data form is linked from the Contact Us web page, under the Law Enforcement Data Requests menu. AHCCCS is circulating this flier to help promote this data sharing opportunity.

For more information, contact missingpersons@azahcccs.gov.
