CLS helps people obtain and preserve necessities of life including AHCCCS Healthcare coverage, Social Security disability benefits, Nutrition Assistance and Cash Assistance.
In order to improve and maintain the stability of families and individuals, CLS places a high priority on cases and matters in which members of our client community are denied access to vital healthcare services and essential economic supports. Individuals seeking legal assistance regarding these types of issues may receive services ranging from resource referrals to formal representation at administrative hearings or court.
CLS advocates on behalf of individuals and families who have been denied coverage or services, or face reductions in services, through state healthcare insurance programs administered by the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES), and the Arizona Department of Health services (DHS). These programs include: Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS), Medicare Savings Programs (MSP), DES Division of Developmental Disabilities services (DDD), and behavioral health services.
CLS offers legal assistance to Arizonans who have been denied access to essential economic supports. Areas of focus include Social Security disability benefits, Cash Assistance and Nutrition Assistance. We also offer assistance in matters such as Social Security overpayments, Nutrition Assistance overpayments, and other issues stemming from these programs.
