Tribal Program

The foundation of the BCBSAZ Health Choice Tribal Program is built on acknowledgement, honoring, and respecting the sovereignty and diverse cultures of all the Tribal Nations throughout the BCBSAZ Health Choice service area as well as throughout the State of Arizona.

It is through this understanding that HCA and its contracted providers are able to work towards decreasing health disparities, ensuring health equity, and maximizing access to physical and behavioral health services. In order to achieve these goals it is essential that HCA engage with Tribes in open, continuous, and meaningful consultation. Our view is that true consultation consists of ongoing information exchange and mutual understanding which leads to informed decision-making.

BCBSAZ Health Choice supports this over-arching goal through active participation and engagement in establishing, maintaining, and developing collaborative relationships with Tribal Leaders, collaborating with the Tribes and AHCCCS policy development and protocols to maximize the effectiveness of communication and ensure the delivery of quality care and services.
