Insurances Accepted

In an effort to make delivering healthcare to our patients seamless, St. Joseph's Westgate Medical Center has worked hard to secure a variety of contracts with health insurance companies, including those listed below.

Please note, that this list is related to hospital services only. Doctors providing care at our facilities are independent practitioners and bill and contract with insurance providers on their own behalf. 

At St. Joseph's Westgate Medical Center, we are continually adding new insurance providers. Please call (877) 602-4111 if you don't see your insurance provider listed. It is always best to verify insurance coverage prior to any service.

Dignity Health hospitals are in-network with most major commercial and Medicare Advantage health plans. Some employers and plans may choose to offer “narrow” network options that limit participating providers. Always check with either your employer’s benefit department or the health plan directly with which you are enrolled to ensure that service by your provider of choice will be covered by your health plan.

Important Information About Your AHCCCS Coverage

If you currently receive health insurance through Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS)* or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), you must renew your benefits this year or within 30 days of written request to maintain health insurance coverage.                  

Why is this happening?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, all AHCCCS or CHIP recipients were continuously enrolled in health insurance coverage without needing to reapply for benefits. Due to a recent federal law, continuous AHCCCS enrollment ended on March 31, 2023, so you need to take steps to ensure your health insurance coverage will continue if you are eligible.

What can you do to maintain your coverage?

  • Make sure to update your contact information with AHCCCS. You can visit  or call 855-432-7587 to learn more about eligibility requirements and eligibility. 
  • Be on the lookout for renewal materials from  Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) and complete and submit the required information.

  • If you no longer qualify for AHCCCS, you can visit  for information on additional coverage options.

Dignity Health in Arizona is committed to providing quality care to you and your loved ones. For information about financial assistance for uninsured patients, visit or
