Benefits of the Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS)

ALTCS is a joint federal-Arizona state program that provides assistance to those who need help paying for long-term care, including those who are 65 or older, disabled, or blind.

ALTCS can be beneficial and includes:

  • Full coverage of acute care services
  • Nursing home care
  • Home and community-based services
  • Services for developmentally disabled adults and children

Am I Eligible for ALTCS Benefits?

In order to receive ALTCS benefits, you must meet certain qualifications. You are eligible for Medicaid or ALTCS if:

  • You have a medical need
  • You meet the income limits
  • You meet the resources/asset limits

There are also complex financial and medical eligibility requirements and a myriad of regulations involving look-back periods, income caps, transfer penalties, and waiting periods to plan around.
