I do not accept AHCCCS / Medicaid. However, for your information, I've included the process for someone with Medicaid to get Mental Health Services in Yuma County:
After applied for, the person receives State Medicaid. In AZ Medicaid is called AHCCCS.
After getting AHCCCS the person is assigned to a Medical Health Plan. Medical health plans include: Mercy Care, AP/IPA, etc. These do NOT cover mental health services.
If Mental Health Services are desired, the person can request Mental Health Services (call the number on the card).
- The person is then assigned to an AREBA (a Regional Behavioral Health Authority). Cenpatico is the only AREBA in Yuma.
- The AREBA (Cenpatico) assigns the person to a Mental Health Intake Agency, he/she cannot just pick one of the six local intake agencies. The six local agencies are:
Superstition Mountain 928-344-9490
Yuma Treatment Center 928-344-4310
The person must then enroll with the Intake Agency for mental health services. The agency will make an intake appointment within 7 days of requesting one. The Intake Agency will manage their mental health care.
