Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs). This new AHCCCS provider type will be effective October 1,
2016 and will be designated as BC in the AHCCCS Provider Registration system.
AHCCCS has finalized the code set to be linked to the new AHCCCS provider type for BCBAs as attached.
BCBAs will have a dual code set that includes traditional codes and the Category III codes (T Codes).

Registration. The Provider Registration application can be found at
www.azahcccs.gov/PlansProviders/CurrentProviders/packet.html. Providers will not be able to
