Beginning on October 1, 2011, AHCCCS will no longer pay for more than 25 days in a hospital within one year. This limit will NOT apply to:
- Children aged 20 and under
- Days in certain governmentally operated burn units
- Days that are part of a transplant stay

It is important for you to keep track of the number of days that you or your dependents are in the hospital. Hospitals can bill you for any days past the 25th day that you or your dependents are hospitalized for reasons not listed above. For additional information please refer to the AHCCCS website.
