In this article, we describe the evaluation of the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), Arizona's alternative
to the acute care portion of Medicaid. We provide an assessment of implementation of the program's innovative features during
its second 18 months of operation, from April 1984 through September 1985. Included in the evaluation are assessments of the
administration of the program, provider relations, eligibility, enrollment and marketing, information systems, quality assurance
and member satisfaction activities, the relationship of the county governments to AHCCCS, the competitive bidding process,
and the plans and their financial status.
