Mercy Care DCS CHP Members

Welcome to the Mercy Care Department of Child Safety Comprehensive Health Plan.

The Mercy Care Department of Child Safety Comprehensive Health Plan (Mercy Care DCS CHP) is a program administered by the Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS). Mercy Care DCS CHP is the health plan for Arizona's children and youth placed in out-of-home care. Mercy Care DCS CHP will replace CMDP beginning April 1, 2021. Children in foster care can access the same covered services with Mercy Care DCS CHP as they do with CMDP and the Regional Behavioral Health Authorities (RBHAs).

Members are enrolled with Mercy Care DCS CHP by their custodial agency (the agency that placed them in out-of-home care). Custodial agencies are:

  • Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS)
  • Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections (ADJC)
  • Administrative Office of the Court/ Juvenile Probation Office (AOC/JPO)

We hosted community information sessions Feb 17-19. You can view the Mercy Care DCS CHP presentation in English or Spanish, and learn more about what this means for you and the children and youth in your care.


We're presenting a Mercy Care DCS CHP Community Information Session during the regularly scheduled Child and Family Advisory Partnership (CFAP) Meeting in February.

Wednesday, February 24 at 6 p.m.
