Good morning,

Arizona Revised Statute 36-2917 mandates that concerns that are sent via the<> email address are confidential and may not be disclosed. Any review and investigation of the conduct of licensed health care providers in order to determine whether disciplinary action should be imposed is confidential.

Complaints submitted to RHBA's and health plans are handled at the RHBA's and health plan level and are not elevated to AHCCCS. We have no responsive documents.

AHCCCS has addressed your request and feels this matter is complete and there is no need to address it on an ongoing basis.
