Is there a Tucson ALTCS Office?
All the ALTCS offices report to the Phoenix area office which is the central office for Medicaid claims. There are offices around the state which are used as a base for the interviewers that come out to evaluate the patients. The evaluations take place approximately 15-30 days after the start of the application. The Tucson office starts off in general with the initial interview. They will prescreen you by asking a series of questions. After they deem you potentially acceptable, an application is sent out. At that point they will schedule a financial and medical interview. After the interviews you are accepted to the program. This generally takes 60 days. However, in the interim there are options available – simply ask.
