How Do I Know If My Child Is Eligible For These Services?

In order to receive our pediatric outreach care, your child cannot be covered by health insurance.

This means that:

  • If you have applied for AHCCCS and were denied, please provide us with the denial letter and we will continue service
  • If you have applied for AHCCCS and are waiting for services, your child can be seen for a limited time
  • If you have private insurance, AHCCCS, or KidsCare, as you must see your selected primary care provider.

We know that this can be confusing. That’s why our staff is happy to answer any questions you have. If you have any questions, please call (480) 412-6344.
