Who are our members 

Most of our members qualify for Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), which is the state’s Medicaid program. You can learn more about who qualifies for AHCCCS. You can visit AHCCCS' Get Covered web page.

You may be able to get medical and behavioral health benefits through AHCCCS. You can apply online through Health-e Arizona PLUS. There’s no cost to apply. You can apply for yourself, your family or someone close to you. You can also use the Health-e Arizona website to renew your AHCCCS benefits. 

Other members qualify for Medicare, or both Medicaid and Medicare.

Some of our members don’t have either coverage, but they can still receive services through special grants and state funding. These services are provided for members who are eligible as part of a special population.  These individuals can receive Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG) and Mental Health Block Grant (MHBG).

American Indians who are members of a tribe have the option to get services from Mercy Care RBHA or the Tribal Regional Behavioral Health Authority (TRBHA), if their tribe has one. American Indians also have the option to receive their care from Indian Health Services.

Next Steps

After you enroll with Mercy Care RBHA, a member representative will refer you to a behavioral health provider. You also have the right to choose your own provider. You can use our Find a Provider tool  to help you find one.

Then, you’ll have an intake appointment within 7 days of your initial request for services.

This appointment allows you to take part in an initial assessment with your provider. This assessment helps your provider learn about your behavioral health needs. They will ask you about your strengths, your needs, and your cultural and treatment preferences.

You can expect the provider to treat you in a respectful manner – one that’s sensitive to your needs, culture and language. You can bring a friend or family member to this and future appointments.

Before the end of this first appointment, you’ll work with your provider to develop a service plan. This plan will identify the steps needed to meet your immediate needs and future goals.
