Children’s Rehabilitative Service (CRS)

Children’s Rehabilitative Services (CRS) is a designation given to certain AHCCCS members who have qualifying health conditions.

Members with a CRS designation can get the same AHCCCS covered services as non-CRS AHCCCS members and are able to get care in the community, or in clinics called multispecialty interdisciplinary clinics (MSIC). MSICs bring many specialty providers together in one location. Your health plan will assist a member with a CRS designation with closer care coordination and monitoring to make sure special healthcare needs are met.

Eligibility for a CRS designation is determined by the AHCCCS Division of Member Services (DMS).

Who is Eligible for a CRS Designation?

AHCCCS members may be eligible for a CRS designation when they are:

  • Under age 21; and
  • Have a qualifying CRS medical condition.

The medical condition must:

  • Require active treatment; and
  • Be found by AHCCCS DMS to meet criteria as specified in R9-22-1301- 1305.

Anyone can fill out a CRS application including a family member, doctor, or health plan representative. To apply for a CRS designation mail or fax:

  • A completed CRS application; and
  • Medical documentation that supports that the applicant has a CRS qualifying condition that requires active treatment.

BCBSAZ Health Choice will provide medically necessary care for physical and behavioral health services and care for the CRS condition.


A multi-specialty interdisciplinary clinic (MSIC) is an established facility where specialists from multiple specialties meet with members and their families for the purpose of providing interdisciplinary services to treat members.

Our contracted MSIC’s offer a wide range of specialties to meet specific needs.
