5 Steps to Health Coverage with a Kids Health Link Assistor  
Connect to Kids Health Link
Use the Connector to find a Kids Health Link assistor from your community who speaks your primary language. You know, the one you use when you’re talking to family. You also can reach Kids Health Link by calling 2-1-1.
Get straight information about every document you need to apply for AHCCCS.
We promise, no surprises! Call your Kids Health Link assistor to set up an appointment. Use this checklist and you’ll have everything you need for the AHCCCS application at your appointment. No taking time off work to waiting at DES! And remember this: A parent’s Social Security number isn’t needed for a child’s AHCCCS application.
Meet with your Kids Health Link assistor and find out about AHCCCS for your family.
We know you’re tired and the family’s got lots going on so you tell us when and we’ll find a Kids Health Link location close to you. Got everything you need for the AHCCCS application? Double check the checklist (English or Spanish) to see if you’re good to go. If you are, your Kids Health Link assistor will fill out the online AHCCCS application and screen your family for healthcare coverage and SNAP (food stamps) when you meet. You get to name the location.
Your Kids Health Link assistor hits enter on the keyboard and submits your application.
Yeah, it can be that simple with Kids Health Link. Oh, our assistors are awesome but they don’t control the Internet or the decision, AHCCCS and DES do that! Just sayin’. The state should confirm your children’s health coverage and eligibility for SNAP (food stamps) while you’re meeting with your assistor.
Time goes by and then a letter from the state about your AHCCCS coverage lands in your mailbox. What next?
Keep calm. AHCCCS has 45 days to determine eligibility. If you don't hear anything by then, call your Kids Health Link assistor directly. No worries, chances are your assistor can help you with your case.
