Arizona immunization program re-enrollment required

All UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Arizona primary care providers (PCPs) must complete their Vaccines for Children (VFC) program re-enrollment before Aug. 31.

This means all PCPs must be actively enrolled with the VFC program in order to have Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) eligible members younger than 19 assigned to them.

If a PCP is not enrolled with or inactivates from the VFC program, members younger than 19 will need to be reassigned.

VFC program overview

The VFC program is a federally funded program that provides vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of an inability to afford vaccines. Please review the AZDHS VFC Program Information and Enrollment website for more information about patient eligibility.


Please refer to the AHCCCS Medical Policy 430 for more information on the enrollment requirement. Additional program information is also available in the VFC Operations Guide.
