Division Provider Manual
This information is current as of the date it was published and may be modified by the Division of Developmental Disabilities (Division or DDD) at any time. This manual was designed so that updates and changes can be implemented efficiently. The dates designate when a section has been updated.
Providers are obligated to adhere to and comply with all of the terms and conditions of the contract they have with the Division, including the requirements described in this manual in addition to all federal and state regulations governing the Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS) program. While this manual contains basic information about the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), providers are required to fully understand and apply AHCCCS requirements when administering covered services.
In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between this manual and federal or state regulatory requirement, federal or state regulatory requirements will take precedence. Additionally, in the event of a conflict or inconsistency between your contract and this Provider Manual, the provisions of your contract will take precedence.
The Division has implemented the process of updating the Division’s Provider Manual by posting these updates as Approved Policies Not Yet Effective which contain the most current policies.
The Division welcomes comments and suggestions from the public at any time. For more information regarding our policies and materials, please contact the Policy Unit at (602) 542-0419 or [email protected].
