Health Insurance for Aging Out Youth
CASAs can help foster youth understand health insurance and what they qualify for. In Arizona, it’s called the Young Adult Transitional Insurance (YATI) – an Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) plan that provides no-cost or low cost health coverage.
Youth can apply any time during the year if these meet these requirements:
-Were in Arizona’s foster care system or in Tribal foster care in Arizona on their 18th birthday
-Currently live in Arizona
-Meet citizenship requirements or qualified immigration requirements.
