Our Practice of Outstanding Customer Service Sets Us Apart
Arizona Foundation for Medical Care (AFMC) has long-been known for our commitment to customer service and customer satisfaction. As we have grown over the last four decades, AFMC has kept the practices that made us a physician favorite at the forefront of our business.

Representing more than 13,000 providers in over 39,000 locations, AFMC is one of the largest healthcare networks in the State. We have retained the close, personal approach to healthcare that is missing at many large national networks.

When our business partners - Brokers, Consultants, Payors and Reinsurance Carriers - need to resolve an issue or challenge with an employer group, they deal with someone locally who has the knowledge and expertise to help. They can assist with finding a physician, answer questions and help solve any problems they may experience with our network.

Providing customer service in our own backyard allows us to recognize and address the issues that are most important to Arizona employers. We have a 94% retention rate for contracted physicians, demonstrating that our commitment lies not only with the employer group, but also with the provider.

AFMC's Senior Sales Consultant Larry Dennis, RHU is available to answer questions and demonstrate how our exceptional customer service has worked for Arizona Businesses for over over 40 years. Larry can be reached
at 602-417-2301 or [email protected].
PCIP Broker Referral Payment Program
Discontinued May 1, 2012
PCIP determined that their outreach efforts succeeded in significantly raising awareness of PCIP and enrollment in the program. As such, The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) ended the PCIP Broker Referral Payment Program in federally administered PCIP states as of May 1, 2012.

All Broker and Consultant referrals that PCIP received prior to May 1 will be processed. 

PCIP will cease using AFMC's Provider Network as of August 1, 2012.

PCIP welcomes continued voluntary referral of potential beneficiaries to this important program. PCIP coverage has reduced costs and saved lives.
