The Arizona Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit Preferred Provider Organization. Originally established by physician members of the Maricopa County Medical Society in 1969 as an alternative to health maintenance organizations, we have grown into Arizona’s largest statewide, independent network by providing highly-accessible, quality care. We focus on containing healthcare costs for employer groups by negotiating and contracting directly with providers to capture savings, in addition to our comprehensive medical management and utilization review.

We work directly with brokers, consultants, general agents, third party administrators, and insurance companies to provide Arizonans the freedom of choice by offering and/or endorsing a variety of healthcare solutions. Our network currently includes more than 15,800 professional providers in over 70,700 locations and is contracted with 77 hospitals throughout Arizona including outpatient surgery centers, dialysis clinics/centers, convenience clinics, urgent care centers and numerous other specialty facilities.

The Arizona Foundation, in conjunction with our strategic business partner, American Health Holding, also offers a wellness program and a comprehensive package of medical management services that include: Utilization, Case and Disease Management, 24-hour Nurse Care Line and Maternity Management services.  
 
Many of the programs now recognized as standard benchmarks for managed healthcare plans across America were pioneered by the Arizona Foundation.
