The Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTC) is a part of the Medicaid program. To apply for these benefits, the process consists of two separate interviews as outlined below. PIma Council on Aging, Tucson Arizona, has a resource guide for people requesting ALTC information, available by clicking here.

If you have specific questions about your application or your circumstances, they should be addressed with the local Tucson ALTC office directly or an elder law attorney. 

Step 1:  Financial Assessment

Once your ALTC application has been submitted, you will be contacted by a case worker, usually within a month depending on their case load.  They will be asking questions about your finances, assets, and marital status.  Examples of what they will want to know will include, but not limited to, the following: 

  • Checking and Savings Accounts
  • Investments : Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, 401K's, etc.
  • Retirement Accounts
  • Real Estate
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Assets
  • ​Non exempt vehicles

Step 2:  Medical Necessity

After your financial assessment is complete and approved, a registered nurse or social worker will schedule a face to face medical evaluation. They will want to consider if the applicant is able to properly and safely perform their Activities of Daily Living.​This portion of the application is based on a point system. 

  • Toileting
  • Showering
  • Dementia / Alzheimer's
  • Behavioral Issues
  • ​Feeding​​

The relationship between Jeanie and my mom started 5 years ago.  I needed some care for her while I was in the hospital.  Since then, my mom developed dementia brought on by a TIA.  With Jeanie's caring personality we were able to make the transition to a care facility with no problems at all.
